Liverpool fans are loving that Joe Allen nutmegged Wayne Rooney

They've already dubbed him the 'Welsh Pirlo' and Joe Allen's moment of magic in the first half of Wales' clash with England will do no harm to his reputation among Liverpool fans.

The midfielder effortlessly nutmegged England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney just minutes into the hugely anticipated Battle of Britain fixture, which obviously delighted those from the red half of Merseyside.

Whetherย Liverpool fans were supporting England or Wales, getting one over on their most bitter club rivals is always the priority, as evidenced by the reaction on social media.
