One particular moment from England’s semi-final win over Israel caught the eye, as Jones produced a sublime no-look pass that would have made Liverpool teammate Bobby Firmino proud. Jones played a neat ball upfield to Anthony Gordon, who then nutmegged his opponent before firing just wide of the goal. It was a display of confidence and class from the Liverpool man, and it’s clear that he has the potential to make a big impact for both club and country in the future.
Jones finished the 2020-21 campaign strongly for Liverpool, making 34 appearances in all competitions and scoring four goals. He has been widely praised for his performances and has been tipped to have a big season ahead.
