(Image) Virgil van Dijk approached by two Irish fans for a selfie during international fixture

Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and Caoimhin Kelleher were all present as the Netherlands beat Ireland 2-1 and it seemed that there were a few Liverpool fans in attendance, judging by what happened to our captain.

Before the second-half began, two young Irish supporters ran onto the pitch in an attempt to get a selfie with our No.4 – before they were led away by stadium security.

You can see from the image that the 32-year-old was happy to oblige but it’s always a worry when supporters are able to get onto the pitch and approach players, before they are halted.

In this instance, it led to a nice moment for the fans but it can easily go very wrong if the right people aren’t on hand quickly enough.
