LFC youngsters rewarded with Europa trip

Four of the reds Under 18’s starlets have been rewarded for their impressive performances this season, and particularly in Monday’s 9-0 victory, with a trip to Prague in Liverpool’s 23 man squad.

The reds face off against Sparta Prague in the 1st Leg of the last 32 Europa League tie on Thursday evening.  Despite managing other clubs in Europe, this will be Kenny Dalglish’s first European game as manager of Liverpool FC.

Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger however, who missed the weekend’s game against Wigan, will remain on Merseyside as they battle to return to fitness ahead of the second leg at Anfield in a weeks time.  Christian Poulsen’s wife is in labour so he misses the trip.

IF Raheem Sterling is selected in the 18 and makes an appearance he will be Liverpool FC’s youngest ever player at the mere age of 16 years and 71 days.

The squad for this game is:

Reina, Jones, Gulacsi, Johnson, Flanagan, Aurelio, Robinson, Kyrgiakos, Wilson, Carragher, Kelly, Skrtel, Meireles, Cole, Maxi, Jovanovic, Lucas, Coady, Ince, Sterling, Pacheco, Kuyt, Ngog.

Andy Carroll has also travelled with the rest of the team.

Kick of is at 8.05pm.

  1. He’s never really took his chance for me, maybe KK is the man to push him to the next level, hope so, I’m never gonna be convinced that Ngog should be wearing the red shirt. Heard Tommo on the radio today, reckons sterling has got it all, combined with a hard work philosophy and a great attitude. Give him a shout YNWA

  2. with sublime performance by sterling he should be given a chance great players show class in there teens so lets see what he can do delighted to hear this news

  3. I agree if the game is going well get them blooded, sooner they get senior time the better, we could do with something new going into the latter stages of the prem season. If we do have a gem or two, all the better. The academy needs to be supplying the first team with the odd player, it’s good to see this is soing to happen sooner rather than later, (even though Sterling cost 750000) its showing promise. YNWA

    • Give the kids a chance, remember Alan Hansen saying “you will never win with kids” Fergie managed to shove it down his throat did’nt he.
      It is not as though we are playing a team of 11 kids is it, I remember when a certain Steven Gerrard made his debut as a KID and look where he is now MR LIVERPOOL!!!!! Come on the pool
