Curtis Jones applauded Liverpool teammate Neco Williams after the Welshman helped his country to the World Cup finals.
After Wales qualified for the tournament for the first time since 1958, Williams took to Instagram to celebrate.
“We are going to the World Cup, a dream come true, wow,” wrote the Liverpool right-back.
Amongst the well-wishers in the comments were a whole host of Liverpool faces, mainly from the academy. “Love it! Congrats mate,” wrote Conor Bradley, while Tyler Morton went with “Love it Neco lad.”
A couple of Jurgen Klopp’s first-teamers made sure to pass on their wishes to their teammate too.

“Love it you,” wrote Caoimhin Kelleher, whereas Jones opted for simplicity, with a clapping hands emoji deemed enough to convey his delight.
Williams on the market
There was plenty of Liverpool interest in Wales’ historic team yesterday. Williams was the only current red to be involved, but former players Harry Wilson, Danny Ward and Joe Allen were also in the squad.
By the time the finals come around in November, it’s likely that Williams will have also added his name to the list of former employees.
The 21-year-old’s displays for Wales have been excellent. As have his showings whilst on-loan at Fulham. He’ll want to be in as good-a-shape as possible heading to Qatar and he won’t get the game-time he needs at Liverpool.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is in his way at Anfield and isn’t going anywhere. Williams is claimed to be frustrated at the situation at Liverpool and is ready to leave.
With this in mind, The Reds have also reportedly made it known that they’ll be willing to listen to offers for Williams this summer.
It’s previously been reported that Liverpool will look to recoup around £10m for their academy product. Given that he’s an established international player and proven Championship quality at the very least, that doesn’t seem unreasonable.
Otherwise, perhaps another loan move would suit all parties. If Williams can enhance his reputation even further at the World Cup, his value could rocket.
