Liverpool have continued their winning start to pre-season with a 2-1 victory over FC Lucerne in which Lucas and Andriy Voronin found the net.
The work being carried out during the Swiss training camp is clearly paying dividends, with the Reds producing some fine interplay in the opposition half.
Most notable among a makeshift side were Daniel Pacheco and Voronin, with the latter scoring a goal which will live long in the memory.
The first goal took 10 minutes to arrive - and the manner in which it came is sure to excite Kopites from Switzerland to Speke. It was little Pacheco, so impressive on his first-team bow against Tranmere at the weekend, who was the architect, weaving a bit of magic around the box before finding the run of Lucas with an exquisite pass. The Brazilian made no fuss about finishing the move with a cool sidefoot beyond David Zibung.
Sadly, what followed was not quite as pretty on the eye from a Liverpool point of view as a hopeful ball into the box from the hosts exposed some defensive vulnerability. New boy Philipp Degen lost out on a far-post header and the ball was nodded across the six-yard box where Gavranovic was ready to convert a free header.
Such mistakes are common at this stage of pre-season, especially with new faces playing together for the first time. Still, Rafa Benitez will doubtless look to do a little ironing out over the coming weeks.
The Spaniard will have taken great heart from the response of his side as the first half wore on, with Voronin, Pachecho and Yossi Benayoun in particular crafting some wonderful one-touch football to leave the home side scratching their heads.
Voronin restored Liverpool's lead on 36 minutes with a 16-yard lob. It was the kind of audacity that Manchester City would pay upward of A#25million for.
The second half was again sprinkled with deft touches from Voronin and the diminutive Pacheco, though at times both were guilty of over-ambition. At just 17, the latter looks a huge prospect - even if 2008-09 arrives too soon in his physical development.
The nearest Liverpool came to a third followed some great link-up play between Lucas and Voronin, though sadly the latter could only drive into the side-netting from 10 yards.
Another positive was the return of Ryan Babel, with the Dutch winger playing his first 45 minutes of football since injuring his ankle in the build-up to Euro 2008.
The Reds now have two days of double training until Saturday's clash with Wisla Krakow, a game you can watch live here on Liverpoolfc.tv.
