Ben Woodburn set for new contract after breakthrough year

  Ben Woodburn set for new contract after breakthrough year After a breakthrough year, Liverpool are set to reward Ben Woodburn with his second new contract in under a year, report the Liverpool Echo. The 17-year-old was promoted to the first-team last November and he made his senior debut for the Reds in a 2-0 win over Sunderland. Woodburn went on to make eight more appearances last season as the versatile attacker began to earn rave reviews which sparked a tug-of-war between Wales and England for his international services. Chris Coleman handed the teenager his Wales debut in the last round of qualifiers and Woodburn came off the bench to score a vital winner against Austria and then notched an assist in a 2-0 win away at Moldova to put Wales in a strong position to secure at least a play-off spot for next summers World Cup. Having signed an improved contract last November, Woodburn is set for his second new deal in under a year with Liverpool ready to offer him a long-term extension when he turns 18 later this month. Yet to make a Premier League appearance this season, Woodburn has been receiving minutes in the Carabao Cup while also impressive in the UEFA Youth League as his stock continues to rise.

Chris Coleman will leave time for the "dust to settle" on Wales' unsuccessful World Cup qualifying campaign before making a decision on his future as coach.

Wales' hopes of reaching the competition for the first time since 1958 were dashed by a 1-0 defeat to the Republic of Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium on Monday.

Coleman's side consequently finished third in Group D, with Ireland advancing to the play-off stage behind Serbia following James McClean's second-half winner.

Despite guiding the nation to an unprecedented semi-final at Euro 2016, the 47-year-old has been forced contemplate his next move by failure to qualify for Russia.

Coleman reveals Baines' influence on him

  Coleman reveals Baines' influence on him Everton defender Seamus Coleman has been discussing the influence that Leighton Baines has had on him and his playing career. As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, the Republic of Ireland international spoke of how he aimed to replicate Baines’ success at the club when he was younger, and was full of praise for his fellow defender. “Early on, there were quite a few full-backs at Everton. Phil [Neville] was here, Tony Hibbert as well – someone I really looked up to and really wanted to learn from – and Bainesy on the other side.” “He got in the PFA team of the season twice and has now got the most assists in the Premier League for a defender, so he was someone I probably tried to watch and learn from the most.” Coleman is currently sidelined as he continues to recover from a broken leg suffered on international duty. He suffered a horrific broken leg at the end of March in Republic of Ireland’s game against Wales, and still appears to be some time away from making his return. This has led to a plethora of options at right-back being tested since by Ronald Koeman, including all of Mason Holgate, Cuco Martina and Jonjoe Kenny. “We both played in similar positions and that relationship he had with Steven Pienaar was probably the best left-hand side in the league. And when I say probably, I’m sure of it.” “He probably had that little bit more composure and quality than me in the final third and that was something I wanted to work on and learn from.” Baines is held in high regard at Goodison Park by the Toffees’ supporters, and it looks as though the players show a similar level of respect and appreciation for the experienced left-back.

"The only picture in my mind is the faces of the players in the dressing room and the disappointment. They're inconsolable at the moment," Coleman, who has been linked with Premier League clubs in the past, told Sky Sports.

"I know why they're like that, but they should feel very proud with what they've done.

"I'm going to be asked about my situation, but I'm going to take some time and wait for the dust to settle. Then we will have a sit down and a chat, take it from there."

Wales were without star man Gareth Bale due to a calf injury and lost Joe Allen in the first half following a blow to the head, and Coleman felt they suffered as a result.

"I thought, on the balance of play, we pretty much dominated the first half. But we knew Ireland would have a gameplan and they executed it very well," he said.

Ward heaps the praise on Woodburn

  Ward heaps the praise on Woodburn Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward has heaped the praise on his club and international teammate Ben Woodburn. As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, the Wales international lauded Woodburn as “very bright” and even admitted to not being fully sure of what the 17-year-old’s best position is. “He takes it all in and you can see that from the way he can play a number of positions seamlessly. I don’t think I know what his position should be!” “He can play as a No.8, a No.10, on the wings or as a No.9 and he seems to know every position perfectly. Tactically, he is very, very bright for someone who is only 17.” Ward spent last season on loan at Huddersfield and has since made one appearance in the Carabao Cup with the Reds, which came in the defeat against Leicester City. “You forget sometimes that he is only 17, he’s still a boy. But obviously he’s got qualities that everyone can see and he’s taken that on to the international stage.” Woodburn, on the other hand, has only been used sporadically in the last couple of seasons as Jurgen Klopp looks to ease him into first-team action. “It’s just a case of him not getting carried away. I don’t think he would ever be like that because he’s a grounded lad. He’s just got to keep learning from the manager and and the players that we’ve got who can be great role models for him.” Despite Klopp’s hesitation to throw Woodburn in at the deep end though, Wales boss Chris Coleman is not holding back, and has already made the youngster a regular in his squad. “Hopefully that can develop him into a top, top player. The world could be his oyster. Hopefully he gets there.” Woodburn will now look to kick on and continue his development, with Ward hoping for more of the same from his compatriot.

What is certain is that Coleman will take a backseat for what is nominally the former Fulham manager's first game in charge of his country while he also considers Verheijen's Wales future .

"They hit us on the counter-attack, a sucker punch, so hats off to them.

"Once you lose Joe Allen, and we were already without Gareth, then our creativity suffers a little bit. There were 10 men behind the ball really and we found that hard to break down.

"Fair play to the Republic of Ireland. Martin [O'Neill]'s done a great job and good luck to them in the play-offs.

"For us, I think that's the first game we've lost here for four years. What do you say to our players? In another campaign they've given everything, yet it wasn't enough to get us over the line.

"I cannot ask for any more. It's the last game and that's our first defeat of the campaign. A point was no good, we needed three points so we had to go for it.

"The group of players we've got, with their age and experience, are going to get better. There's another World Cup that's got away from us, and that will hurt for a bit. We will learn from tonight."
