Liverpool's teenagers showed the future looks bright at Anfield with some impressive displays for the England U19s last night.

Andre Wisdom, who was on the bench for the Reds' first team on the final day of the season, captained the Young Lions to a 1-0 victory over Montonegro at the Stade Municipal in Switzerland, with a clash against the hosts up next for the juniors.

Jack Robinson, Conor Coady, Thomas Ince and Michael Ngoo were also involved, and it was the son of former Liverpool midfielder Paul Ince who set up Tottenham's Harry Kane for the only goal of the game.

“Having so many players involved at international level is testament to the hard work everyone is doing here,” said Frank McParland, director of academy and player development at Liverpool.


Referring specifically to Wisdom, LFC TV presenter Clair Rourke told the official Liverpool website: "(Wisdom is) A powerful presence at the back. The teenager has all the hallmarks of a natural leader with an ability to organise and motivate his teammates."

Jonjo Shelvey and John Flanagan would also have been involved but for injury, suggesting a healthy line of talented domestic players coming through the ranks at Liverpool's academy at Melwood.
