The name Vitezslav Jaros may not be totally familiar to all Liverpool fans at this moment in time, though the 21-year-old goalkeeper is certainly making his mark on the international stage in Romania and Georgia.

Jaros joined the Reds from Slavia Prague in 2017, and although he is yet to play for Jurgen Klopp’s side, he has been on the bench four times – against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup in February 2020, and for Champions League clashes with Ajax (home and away) and FC Midtjylland in the 2020/21 season.

In the search for first-team action, Jaros earned himself a move to League Two play-off finalists Stockport County and began life as number one at Edgeley Park before injury struck.

Having failed to win back his place between the sticks at Stockport, it was expected that the Czech shot-stopper would play back-up to Manchester United’s Matej Kovar during his nation’s under-21 European Championship campaign.

However, the withdrawal of Kovar has thrust Jaros into the limelight and he certainly has not disappointed. Despite losing 2-0 against an England side that included club teammates Harvey Elliot and Curtis Jones in his first Euros outing, Kovar’s display in an unfancied 2-1 win against Germany has won plenty of plaudits,

The Athletic described Jaros’ performance in that match as ‘terrific’ and while his performances add further credit to Liverpool’s ever-developing goalkeeping department, the 21-year-old has already admitted his short-term future is unclear for now.
