“If I thought it was too early for him I wouldn’t have called him up, because this game is massive for us,” he said.
“I am thinking about what is the best squad to get together to meet this next challenge. And Ben has done enough.”
Speaking to Wales Online, Coleman was also at pains to explain why he had made the decision over Woodburn’s promotion to the seniors without consulting Klopp.
“No, I make my own mind up about a player. I understand when you pick young players then clubs go ‘Oh, calm down,’ but I make my own mind up,” he added.
Woodburn has been joined in the squad by fellow under-23 Anfield talent Harry Wilson, who was added to the Wales set-up after an injury to Tom Lawrence.
Wilson is Wales’ youngest-ever player, capped at just 16 years and 207 days, but has yet to add to his solitary outing since that first appearance in 2013.
To complete the trio of Liverpool players in the Wales squad, on-loan goalkeeper Danny Ward is vying for a starting berth, having impressed this season at Huddersfield.
Ward acknowledges he has a battle to win a place in the side at international level, but told the Huddersfield Examiner he was relishing the challenge.
“Wayne [Hennessey] has been brilliant for Wales,” Ward said.
“He’s been number one for a number of years and I can’t say enough about him.
“On a personal note it’s just a case of chasing him and trying to catch the eye in the training and perhaps change the expectations the manager may have.
“It’s going to be a hard task but it’s one I will relish over the next couple of years.
“It would be nice to get the shirt in Dublin but that’s for the manager to decide.”
