Brendan Rodgers' first game in charge of Liverpool resulted in a 1-1 friendly draw with Major League Soccer side Toronto in Canada.

The hosts took a 58th-minute lead through Quincy Amarikwa but Liverpool equalised 11 minutes later through Adam Morgan following good work by the lively Raheem Sterling as honours finished even at the Rogers Centre.

Rodgers, who was without a host of senior players for various reasons, named a mixture of youth and experience for Liverpool's opening pre-season match and made wholesale changes at half-time - 23 Reds players featured in the game.

Liverpool are also set to be part of a new documentary series to be shown on Channel Five later this year. The programme will follow the team around on their pre-season tour of America, and utilises behind-the-scenes access to show Brendan Rodgers addressing the players, taking training sessions and dealing with press conferences.

The Liverpool chairman Tom Warner is quoted in the Daily Mirror saying: "I expect it will be compelling programming as Liverpool will provide unprecedented access.

“This will be an amazing opportunity for our fans to see a new side of the club and for us to reach out to many more potential supporters around the world who will come to understand what makes Liverpool FC so special."
