Liam Millar was handed another senior opportunity at international level on Sunday as Canada cruised to an 8-0 win over the US Virgin Islands.
The 18-year-old was deployed in an unfamiliar right-wing back role in the Concacaf Nations League qualifier having primarily featured as a forward for Liverpool’s youth sides.
With Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David lining up from the off with Millar, it was the first time in Canada’s history that three teenagers had featured in the starting eleven for a competitive game.
Millar played a starring role in Canada’s opener on five minutes, picking the ball up on the right-hand side before finding the head of Jonathan Osorio with a perfectly-weighted cross.
Millar was a star figure for Steven Gerrard’s U18s side last season, pushing for a prominent role under Neil Critchley in the higher age bracket.
The teenager scored his first goal for the U23s in August when he headed home during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
He wasn’t the only Liverpool prospect in action over the weekend, with Academy teammates Neco Williams and Morgan Boyes featuring for Wales U19s in their 1-0 win over Glen McAuley’s Ireland.
Curtis Jones meanwhile starred in a 2-1 win for England’s U19s against France, whilst loanee Ben Woodburn made a substitute appearance for Wales’ senior team.
