Lampard has praised Wilson's quality and work ethic and Wilson has enjoyed honing his free-kick technique on the training ground, which he put to devastating use when Derby knocked Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup in September.

Wilson's excellent free kick in Dublin on Tuesday night was the winning goal as Wales beat the Republic of Ireland 1-0 in the UEFA Nations League.

Wales boss Ryan Giggs lauded Harry Wilson for his exceptional free-kick against the Republic of Ireland, joking that he fined the youngster for scoring a similar goal against Manchester United earlier in the season.

Derby's on-loan Liverpool winger walloped a brilliant free-kick over the wall and into the net on 58 minutes as Wales completed the double over Ireland, who were demolished 4-1 in Cardiff last month.

After spending the second half of last season with Hull City, Liverpool felt Wilson would benefit from another spell in the Championship, with as many as 12 English clubs enquiring about his availability.

'I have messaged Klopp a few times, ' he said.

"I'm so proud - they dug in right to the end".

"I was gutted when their goal went in, I thought we were still well in the game".

Wales are already guaranteed a place in pot two of the draw for Euro 2020 qualifying, and a win against Denmark in their next outing will secure promotion to the top tier of the Nations League.

"They have a great spirit, we lack a little bit of technical ability".

"You always feel like you've more to offer, if you're not, then you're not a positive thinker and I am a positive thinker and positive in the way I play".
