Ward, who returned from loan at Aberdeen in January, is yet to make his debut for Liverpool but made his national bow as a substitute in the 1-1 draw against Northern Ireland.

The 22-year-old replace Crystal Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey at half-time.

Prior to the game, Ward revealed that he was also hoping to make his Reds’ debut sooner rather than later.

“To get your first senior cap would be a proud moment for me and my family,” said Ward.

“My ambition on the club front is to be Liverpool’s No 1 and I will keep trying to do that as long as they want me at the club.

‘Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later. Competition is healthy, I am at a great club and I want to make an impact there.”

When Ward was first recalled – in the days following Adam Bogdan’s blunder at Exeter City – most supporters would have been surprised to find the young Welshman still hasn’t been given a chance two months later.

Ward has gone from playing every game for Aberdeen, to warming the bench at Anfield.

Will Jurgen Klopp finally offer him a chance in the remaining weeks of the season?
