Rhian Brewster is back in the picture at Liverpool.
The teenager took part in a friendly match with Northwestern University at Kirkby Academy on Friday afternoon (official website).
The striker scored two goals, one a beautiful curling strike into the top corner, during a 45-minute cameo to signal that he is back after his injury nightmare.
Brewster had been sidelined since January 2018 after landing awkwardly during an U23 match against Manchester City.
He required surgery on both his knee and ankle and has had to work hard and be patient.
As gutted as fans were when he sustained the injuries, those supporters are now elated he is back playing again, with many hopeful he can make his mark in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team next season.
Liverpool fans react
The Reds faithful have been itching for the talented striker to return to action, as big things are expected of him.
The club have very high hopes for Brewster, who has already won the World Cup with the England U17s and the golden boot.
As both the club and player took to Twitter to mention his return, many fans expressed their excitement:
Big times ahead??❤️
