Liverpool starlet Adam Morgan added to his growing reputation with a double in the 3-0 win over Molde for the club's Under 19s.

Facing a must-win clash against the Norwegian outfit in Group Two of the NextGen Series, Morgan came off the bench to fire the Reds to victory and a chance of progressing to the knock-out stages of the competition.

The Merseysiders will travel to Sporting Lisbon full of confidence after their second-half display at Anfield, and it was Morgan who took the plaudits from manager Rodolfo Borrell.

"In the first half they got a lot of players behind the ball and tried to stop us playing. We needed to play much quicker and we changed our system to a 4-4-2 in the second half when Morgan came on," Borrell told the official Liverpool website.

"He is a player who scores a lot of goals. He could start in the first XI but people need to remember he is still an U18 player. He played the full 90 minutes for the Liverpool U18s and scored twice at the weekend and we want to protect him.

"Last season he scored consistently at U18 level and got many goals. He is capable of scoring a lot of goals and is a very useful player to have in our squad."


 

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and director of football Damien Comolli were both in the stands to take in the performance, and are likely to have been impressed with the performance of a player dubbed 'the next Robbie Fowler'.

Teammates Raheem Sterling and Andre Wisdom were also on-song in the victory, and the trio could well be getting involved in first team activities at Liverpool sooner rather than later.
