All goals, Full Match, Full Highlights, Highlights Extended, score and goals: Liverpool 2-0 Leeds United – Highlights & Full Match (EFL Cup)
When the moment came, time seemed to stand still. It always does for the natural goalscorers.
A ball across goal to Divock Origi, a simple pass to his left via Georginio Wijnaldum and there stood a young man with history at his feet. At 17 years and 45 days, Ben Woodburn had the opportunity to become Liverpool’s youngest ever goalscorer.
It was a simple chance really but they have been missed by older and better men. And the first goal of a senior career is never simple, is it? Woodburn made it look so.
