Ben Woodburn played out the dream of every teenage Liverpool fan on Saturday as he made his Premier League debut in the side’s 2-0 win over Sunderland.
Fans took to their feet and Anfield erupted when the 17-year-old replaced Georginio Wijnaldum to play out the last few minutes of the game.
It was a visibly special moment for supporters and Woodburn himself with his first pass being rewarded with cheers from the terraces.
The youngster took to Instagram shortly after to celebrate the achievement.
At an age of 17 years and 42 days, Woodburn became the third youngest player to feature for the Reds, behind only Jack Robinson and Jerome Sinclair.
The youth star has been impressing for Michael Beale’s U23s side so far this season and has quickly become a name everyone associated with Liverpool is familiar with, after he starred in the club’s pre-season matches.
Some fans even called for his introduction when Philippe Coutinho was forced off with an injury. He is highly rated and we can expect to see him in the first team again at some point during this campaign.
Congratulations on a remarkable accomplishment, Ben.
