Watch: Liverpool youngster scores incredible lob

The 16-year-old scored the amazing two-touch goal for the Anfield club’s under-18 team in a 3-0 FA Youth Cup victory over Cardiff City.

Ben Woodburn, a centre forward who also plays with Wales under-17s, netted the cheeky lob to open the scoring for Neil Critchley’s side.

The youngster needed just two touches from a long Adam Phillips pass to exquisitely send the ball over Cardiff’s keeper - his control and audacity is reminiscent of Tottenham’s Dele Alli when he netted one of the goals of the season against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Liverpool fans should certainly acquaint themselves with the Welshman, who looks to be one for the future.
