Barrow – Liverpool U21 2-1
On Tuesday, Liverpool’s Under-21s played their final group stage match in the EFL Cup. It happened away towards Barrow.
Mateusz Musialowski had scored in his previous two matches in the tournament, and scored his third goal on Tuesday when he sent a long shot against the crossbar from more than 20 meters midway through the first half. According to the Liverpool Echo newspaper.
Barrow equalized through Shaun Italoko midway through the second half, before Mazid Ogungbo scored the winning goal ten minutes later.
It is still possible to continue
But even if the Reds lose, it is not necessary to eliminate them. And they would have been if Barrow had won the match by three goals. Liverpool still ranks second in the group, and can qualify if group leaders Blackpool beat Morecambe in the final next week.
Ian Doyle highlights 16-year-olds Carter Binnington and 16-year-old Amara Nalu as impressive players. So has 34-year-old Jay Spearing, who is also the Play Academy coach this season. He received a rating of 8 on Echo’s player exchange, the highest ever. He played for about an hour.
Star pitcher Trey Nyoni played, as did Kaide Gordon, who made his first active start since February.
Liverpool U21: Pitaloja, Miles, Pennington, Nalu, Davidson, Spearing (Billing 59), Musialowski, Nyony (Onanonga 82), Gordon (Morrison 59), Koumas, Frauendorf (Connie Doherty 46).
