Adam Morgan fires home against Rosenborg in NextGen action

Adam Morgan and Jerome Sinclair further enhanced their reputations and reminded manager Brendan Rodgers of their talent as they helped Liverpool to a 4-1 win over Rosenborg in NextGen action.

Both players have been called up to the first team squad under Rodgers this season; Morgan playing twice in the Europa League and Sinclair becoming the youngest player in the clubs history when he played in the League Cup against West Brom.

Rodgers is short of options in attack and has already shown his willingness to hand opportunities to the young players who have come through the Liverpool academy at Melwood.

Morgan has been with the club since the age of 10 and is now beginning to make his mark as he once again put in an impressive performance for a Liverpool youth team which had previously lost all three of their NextGen games.

The 18-year-old scored twice as he helped Liverpool avenge the 3-0 loss to Rosenborg earlier in the competition. His first came after good work from Jordan Ibe who fed the ball to Morgan and the striker swivelled and fired the ball home from the edge of the box.

His second showed his poachers instinct as his initial shot was well saved but it was the Liverpool number nine who reacted the fastest to keep the ball in play and fire home.

Sinclair, still just 16-years-old, was introduced from the bench and he capped off an impressive display with a superb solo effort which left Liverpool with a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages of the NextGen series.

With Liverpool not wanting to risk an injury to star striker Luis Suarez, Rodgers may well continue to look at his youth players when playing in the Europa League.

Both strikers have already had a taste of first team action and will hope that their display at Langtree Park did not go unnoticed by the Liverpool boss.
