'New Fowler' makes his mark again

Liverpool starlet Adam Morgan scored the winner for England's under-19s in an impressive victory over Portugal in the Limoges Tournament in France.

Noel Blake's side had started off the four-team tournament on Wednesday evening with a 2-2 draw against the host nation, but went one better on Friday.

Morgan netted the only goal of the game in the 65th winner to further demonstrate his knack for finding the back of the net.

The Liverpool teenager scored in 13 consecutive games - a tally of 18 goals - for the Reds Academy side last season as he strived for a spot in Kenny Dalglish's first-team.

Aged only 17, Morgan is already being hailed as Liverpool's new Robbie Fowler - a player the young forward cites as his idol.


A local Liverpool lad, Morgan is keen to emulate his hero at Anfield and, should he continue his goalscoring exploits, Dalgish may well take notice.

The Liverpool boss has already demonstrated that he is willing to put his faith in youth, having relied on the likes of John Flanagan and Jack Robinson to make the step up to the senior side.

Dalglish also named Academy star Raheem Sterling in his Europa League squad to travel to Prague in February, after the winger had netted four times against Southend in the FA Youth Cup.
