Arsenal defender Takehiro Tomiyasu has praised Liverpool midfielder Wataru Endo after the 31-year-old captained Japan to a historic win against Germany.
Endo joined Liverpool this summer in an £18m deal from VfB Stuttgart, with the midfielder signed in part to fill in the leadership void left by Jordan Henderson.
And early signs have been impressive, with Endo’s reputation amongst Liverpool fans no doubt about to hit a new high after his latest performance from Japan.
Moreover, praise from a player like Tomiyasu will once again put a much-needed spotlight on Endo, who this international break with Japan has already impressed many Liverpool supporters.
