Former England national team striker Gary Lineker had only one sentence to describe Liverpool youth team’s victory against Shrewsbury Town in FA Cup 4th round replay.
Jurgen Klopp’s team failed to beat the 3rd division team in an away match and has to host them at Anfield during the Premier League winter break.
Despite Klopp’s decision to rest the senior squad, the world once again watched the young team on the pitch. And this time, it was successful.
An own goal from Ro-Shaun Williams after Neco Williams cross was enough for the Merseyside club to reach round of 16, where they will face Chelsea.
“Liverpool’s kids have beaten Shrewsbury. All that fuss over nothing.” Lineker wrote on twitter.
