For as dismal as the Liverpool first team have been for much of this season, fans can take heart that the Academy is still churning out some strong talent.
Case in point: 17-year-old Reds forward Rhian Brewster, who opened the scoring for England in the FIFA U17 World Cup Final. With Spain up 2-0 late in the first half, Brewster’s fine header got England on the board and sparked an incredible comeback as the Young Lions clawed their way to a 5-2 victory and some well-earned winners’ medals.
Brewster scored eight goals throughout the tournament, with most of them coming in the knockout stages. It was enough to earn him the Golden Boot award for the tournament.
Such an incredible achievement was not lost on the senior team.
Well done to young Rhian and the rest of the England U17s!
