Liverpool academy starlet impresses on the big stage
By Emma Sanders
Liverpool academy star Rhian Brewster produced another stunning performance for England Under-17s in their European Championship qualifier in Romania on Sunday.
The youngster was on hand to score England’s winning goal against Austria as they recorded a crucial 3-2 victory and Brewster was involved heavily throughout the game, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The 16-year-old had a shot saved on the line shortly after Austria took the lead in the first-half and hit the post after the break which led to England’s second goal.
Brewster rounded-off another impressive international display when he slotted home a penalty kick to seal victory for the young lions.
The Liverpool forward, who has performed regularly for Neil Critchley’s Under-18 side this season, scored five goals in two games during England’s Croatia Cup campaign last month.
