Liverpool fans have stepped up demands for their club to complete the signing of Jude Bellingham after he scored the opening goal in England's 2022 World Cup Group B clash with Iran.
Gareth Southgate's side scored three goals in the first half against Iran, with Bellingham netting his first ever goal at a senior international tournament.
It arrived on 35 minutes, with the Borussia Dortmund midfielder planting a header beyond substitute goalkeeper Hossein Hosseini.
Saka added a second after the break, before Mehdi Taremi pulled one back for Iran.
But for a lot of Liverpool fans, most of the focus was on Bellingham, given extensive transfer links between the Reds and the player in recent months.
And there were plenty of fan reactions after his first goal in a World Cup.
Liverpool fans react to Bellingham goal
One fan implored Reds owners FSG to buy the midfielder: "Jude Bellingham is exactly the midfielder we need at Liverpool man."
They were backed by another fan: "Liverpool must go and get Jude Bellingham at all costs, what a player."
This is Anfield journalist, Danny Gallagher, meanwhile, summed up the future hopes of many supporters: "England's first goal of the 2022 Qatar World Cup scored by Liverpool's Jude Bellingham."
One of the main stumbling blocks surrounding any move for Bellingham is his potential asking price, with German outlet Bild claiming that Dortmund want €150 million for their midfielder.
And Reds fans are concerned that his goal against Iran might further increase that value.
One Reds supporter warned: "That price went up by 10m just now."
And another said: "Bellingham price tag is going to hit €200m after this World Cup."
A third fan added: "Great, now Bellingham's price just went up 50 mil..."
