Liverpool fans reacted with delight on Twitter as youngster Ovie Ejaria netted his first international goal.
The 18 year-old scored England Under-20s’ first goal against the United States on Monday evening as his side secured a comfortable 2-0 win.
It was only the Liverpool starlet’s second appearance for England after making his debut in the victory against Germany on 7 September.
The win was the side’s third in a row in the Four Nations youth tournament, as England beat Holland and Germany prior to their win over the USA.
The youngster’s goal was a delightful one. He ran at the defence with pace and power before delivering a curling strike which slotted in the far corner with precision.
Here is a selection of the messages from Liverpool supporters on Twitter:

Ejaria made a name for himself amongst Liverpool fans during pre-season when he made his debut under Jurgen Klopp in the Reds’ victory against Tranmere Rovers at the beginning of July.
He was hugely impressive throughout the pre-season campaign and has since featured for Liverpool in their first team clash against Derby County in the EFL Cup.
Already this season, he’s impressed for the Liverpool’s U23 team, alongside the likes of Danny Ings, Ben Woodburn and Mamadou Sakho.
Although Klopp has been keen to hush talk about the club’s youngsters in the media in an attempt to relinquish some pressure, it was hard for Liverpool fans not to share their excitement on Twitter.
Here’s some of the best views;
Ejaria continues to impress, both at club & international level. A really exciting talent. https://t.co/ijZShxBVmE
