Ben Doak compilation vs Spain is going viral, Liverpool have a player on their hands

The highlights from Ben Doak’s performance against Spain have gone viral.
17-year-old Doak was in action for Scotland U21 as they took on Spain U21 in the 2025 U21 Euro qualification.
In what was a cagey affair, Spain eventually came out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from Benat Turrientes in the 83rd minute.
However, despite being on the losing side, Doak’s performance has attracted a lot of attention.
The Liverpool winger showed his pace and skills as he was direct in his play, often running at the Spain defence in order to drive his team forward.
At one stage, Doak produced a stunning turn to get away from his marker in the middle of the park.
The young winger could have got himself on the scoresheet but his near post shot was saved by the Spanish goalkeeper.
Scotland U21 manager Scot Gemmill said: “It was an exceptional performance from Ben Doak. I would even add that's there more to come from him.
“He's not fully match fit at the moment because of his limited minutes as he is playing for such a good club. Imagine a fully fit Ben Doak!”
He added: “I thought it was a really top performance and hopefully everyone saw that.”
Overall, it was a very encouraging performance from the 17-year-old as he looks to get more game time at Liverpool this season.
It is well documented that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp rates Doak highly after he brought him on to replace Mohamed Salah during the Reds’ opening Premier League match away at Chelsea.
During Liverpool’s pre-season campaign, Klopp praised Doak, he said: “We saw the kids how good they were. James never played a six before and today he played there and it was so nice to watch, to be honest. Bobby first half did really well.
“Ben Doak, oh my God, it’s much fun to watch these kids. Calum I’ve known him only nine days, he was injured before and now he was there. Koumas came on, Conor Bradley really good.”
