Liverpool starlet Rhian Brewster gave Reds another reason to be cheerful today as he registered a brace in a 3-1 win for England’s U17s over Norway.
The youngster, currently in Croatia for the U17 European Championship, managed to ensure his name remained in the spotlight in relatively unspectacular fashion, finishing off two of the more straight forward opportunities he is likely to experience in front of goal throughout his career.
That said, it still required two moments of composure and Brewster was on hand to provide just that. The striker equalised for his team in the 10th minute when he turned home a tap in following some great build up play from Manchester City star Jadon Sancho. His second followed shortly after as he took advantage of some more good wing play on the left-hand side, guiding the eventual pull-back calmly past the Norway keeper.
He will undoubtedly go on to score better goals but his most recent contributions posed as refreshing reminders of how important it is for a young forward to simply get himself in the box. Some of the easiest finishes can often turn out to be the most difficult.
Brewster took it upon himself to make sure he was in the right position and it was that glimpse of attacking instinct that Reds will love.
