Liverpool defender Ozan Kabak has been showing himself in an impressive light with his recent performances for the Reds and that fine form has continued away on international duty.  

The 21-year-old (birthday today), who is on a six-month loan from Schalke, completed 90 minutes for Turkey on Wednesday in a World Cup qualifier against a Netherlands side captained by Gini Wijnaldum.

Kabak partnered with Leicester City’s Caglar Soyuncu at centre-back as the hosts overcame the Dutch 4-2 on a dramatic night in Istanbul.
