Virgil van Dijk is captain of club and country and this is set to be a huge summer in his career, as he attempts to conquer Europe and then adapt to a new Liverpool head coach.

With less than 10 minutes left on the clock though, the 32-year-old rose highest in the box and powered the ball home after some lackluster defending.

It was the perfect way to prepare for a Euro 2024 showdown for his nation, with the tournament starting in one week’s time.
