While the season is formerly over for numerous footballers, the former Hull City man still has his two biggest institutions to come and just four days piecemeal.
Liverpool’s Andy Robertson has formerly made 54 appearances for club and country this season but still has the biggest eight days of his formerly outstanding footballing career ahead of him.
The full- reverse will be lining up at the Stade de France on Saturday evening for the Titleholders League Final as he looks to win the competition for a alternate time with the Reds and gain vengeance against Real Madrid for their 2018 defeat.
Also, just four days latterly, he goes from the biggest game of his club career to the biggest at transnational position, as he leads Scotland out against Ukraine at Hampden Park for their delayed FIFA World Cup play- off semi final.
Robertson is the epitome of the ultramodern footballer who has both the physical and internal strength to perform at a constantly high position, all while carrying the weight of anticipation that comes from being both the captain of his country and a crucial part in one of the most well put together club sides of the millenium.
Still, at 28 times of age, he’ll formerly have achieved everything that’s likely possible and would cement himself as an ‘ all- time great ’ of both the Anfield club and his nation, If he can disband the demons from Kyiv and lead his country to their first FIFA World Cup tests since 1998 also.
Just look at some of the other fabulous numbers to blazon Anfield and Hampden Park who have n’t been suitable to achieve similar feats.
You have to go back to the glory days of the late 1970s and early 1980s where fellow Scots Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness comprised the chine of Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan’s all conquering Liverpool sides.
Scotland also look back on that time period as a golden period of talented players, indeed if it noway materialised into jewel success.
Decades worth of Scotland suckers have now grown up with tales from parents and grandparents who were blessed to see the likes of Dalglish as well as other world class stars like Archie Gemmill and Joe Jordan to name only a couple.
Over the coming nine days, Robertson has the chance to achieve commodity that legends of his club like Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher could n’t- lifting the Titleholders League doubly.
He can also do commodity that an entire generation of talented internationals like James McFadden, Darren Fletcher and Scott Brown could n’t- qualify for the World Cup tests.
There’s still a long way to go and the obstacles of Real Madrid, Ukraine and Wales standing in his way, but success over the coming nine days will cement his heritage.
Robertson is formerly extensively regarded by numerous as the stylish left- reverse in world football at the moment, and wherever his career goes in the future he formerly has an enviable collection of winners orders and caps.
He’s a Premier League winner, Titleholders League winner and captained Scotland at the Euro 2020 tests and that’s enough for him to be considered an icon of both club and country.
Still, the coming three games could elevate him from ‘ icon ’ to ‘ each- time great ’ for both club and country- establishing him as one of the veritably stylish to ever wear both the red of Liverpool and dark blue of Scotland.
