Liverpool Starlet Scores Wonder Goal For England U21s In Euros

England U21 have been tearing up the U21 Euros. So far, they have won each of their group games by a score of 2-0, beating Czech Republic U21, Israel U21 and of course, Germany U21.

Elliot has been a key player in each of these games – arguably, he has been England’s greatest creative influence. He has been cutting through defensive lines like a hot knife through butter, whether it be with precise through balls or with progressive carries.

Will Harvey Elliot become a key player for Liverpool next season?

For Harvey Elliot, the sky is truly the limit. It is extremely rare for a player of his age to be so talented – not to mention complete.

He has a very wide skillset – it’s difficult to see anything about his game that has even the faintest shade of green about it. He’s a great passer, a fearless runner with the ball and he also possesses an excellent engine and work ethic.

With that being said, Liverpool are looking to bolster both their midfield and attacking options. This is not good news for Elliot, who will be looking to stake a claim as a first-team regular next season.

Generally, Elliot has found himself deployed as an advanced number eight or on the wings. As the Reds appear to be purchasing players in both of these positions (not to mention their acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister), Elliot’s game time may end up being more limited than he would like.

Harvey Elliot football career summary so far

Born in 2003, Elliot initially joined the youth academy of Queen’s Park Rangers, before making the jump to fellow London club Fulham. He signed his first professional deal with the club in 2018, but made just two appearances for the Cottagers before being snapped up by Liverpool.

In 2019, he made his debut for the Reds – he broke the record for the youngest player to ever play in the Premier League at the time (now held by Arsenal’s Ethan Nwaneri).
