Liverpool academy star Rhian Brewster has been in scintillating form at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in India, scoring a hat-trick in a 3-1 semi-final win over Brazil on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old joined the Reds from Chelsea in 2015 and it surely won't be long before he's handed his debut by Jurgen Klopp.

Brewster is the leading goalscorer at the U-17 World Cup and has netted back-to-back hat-tricks against USA and Brazil.

The win over Brazil secured a place in the final against Mali or Spain, who meet later on Wednesday.

Brewster is on course to win the Golden Shoe – an award that has previously been won by former Premier League players Cesc Fabregas and Carlos Vela.

The talented young striker will face plenty of competition in order to break into the Liverpool first team this season.

Daniel Sturridge is vying for a starting berth with Roberto Firmino whilst 20-year-old Dominic Solanke is also pushing for his first Premier League start.


Solanke, who was also part of Chelsea's youth academy - won the Golden Boot as England won the FIFA U-20 World Cup earlier in 2017.

What Klopp thinks of Brewster

With everyone talking about Brewster on Twitter, Sunday Times football correspondent Jonathon Northcroft shared something he learned ten months ago.


He had asked what Klopp thought of the hugely talented Liverpool striker - the answer was pretty emphatic.

Opta revealed that Brewster has scored with seven of his ten shots on target at the U-17 World Cup.

Liverpool teammate Solanke is yet to score a competitive goal for the Reds but his manager is undoubtedly happy to have him at the club.

"It's exciting, absolutely exciting. I'm really happy to have him around. He's a wonderful kid, that's how it is," Klopp told reporters in September.


"He takes the minutes - each minute - as an opportunity. That's the benefit of [his] age.

"When you are this age and you didn't play so often in the Premier League then it's a Premier League game in the stats, whether it's one minute, two minutes, it's five, it's 20. He doesn't care too much about this.

"You can see this, he's full of joy and quality, it was nice to see."
