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 (more importantly in this context) 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.

We're sure the bulk of Liverpool will be supporting the Three Lions, but that doesn't mean getting one over on their bitter club rivals isn't always the priority, as evidenced by the reaction on social media.
