Belgium international Divock Origi has handed Liverpool the lead in their Europa League quarter-final tie against Borussia Dortmund.
The dynamic forward, who was selected ahead of England international Daniel Sturridge for the fixture, used his pace and power to get in front of Sven Bender to slot the ball home accurately.
The away goal, of course, could prove a crucial one for Liverpool, who will be desperate to overcome their German opponents and secure a place in the semi-final of the competition.

The goal represents Origi's first strike in 10 games for the Reds, but it's fair to say that Klopp's decision to select him has already been justified.
In truth, Liverpool's goal is well deserved after a solid start to the game. Dortmund, unsurprisingly, have enjoyed more possession, but Jurgen Klopp's side, most notably Mamadou Sakho, have defended admirably.

And here is Klopp's reaction:
Klopp said he would celebrate
Before the contest, Klopp made it clear that he wouldn't be against celebrating a Liverpool goal.
Ahead of the match, as per the Guardian, Klopp stated: "Of course I will celebrate. I did it when I went back to Mainz with Dortmund, and I was there for 18 years. If after seven years they don’t know me well enough that my team should score and I will celebrate, what can I say? It depends.
"If it’s in the first minute I don’t know, I won’t go running down the line. But if it’s important, decisive, in this moment that’s what happens. It’s not that I plan this but I will not take some pills to stop me from celebrating a goal.
"At Mainz they knew about it. We had a big celebration when I left and when I went back there it’s what they expected. I did everything for Mainz, I did everything for Dortmund and now I do everything for Liverpool – it is like it is. My father loved me but when we played something against each other he wanted to beat me.
"I needed 15 years to beat him for the first time but that wasn’t his problem and there was no doubt about our relationship. It’s a game, even if people are not always aware of it."
