Highlights after the jump, since apparently the FA loves autoplay.
As mentioned in the comments yesterday, England's U19 squad got past their Slovakian counterparts 2-0 at Gresty Road in Crewe in a warm-up for their Euro qualifying, set to begin October 8th in Belgium.
The win was largely down to the performance of three Liverpool boys---Michael Ngoo netted the opener (:45) after 16 minutes, Jonjo Shelvey started the match as captained and scored the second on a fantastic free kick in the 72nd minute (1:40) as part of a Man of the Match performance (just watch the sequence after his goal---great distribution, good chance on goal, inch-perfect through-ball for Ngoo, and a nice turn in slo-mo) and Andre Wisdom played a full 90 as part of a defense that kept a clean sheet.
So it was a good day for the youngsters ahead of today's congested fixture list for the senior internationals---as I outlined yesterday, there's a possibility we could see 8 Liverpool men in action today. Just think happy thoughts.
Another slow news day, though, and it's not likely to pick up on the Liverpool front until Wednesday. The internationals will keep us busy until then, but judging by yesterday's comments section there's not too much energy surrounding the international break. Post up later today or tomorrow ahead of Jamie Carragher's Anfield testimonial---should be a fantastic event.
