Liverpool's U19s earned an excellent victory in their latest NextGen Series match last night.
In his first game in charge of the side since being appointed earlier in the week, Alex Inglethorpe's team defeated their counterparts from Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the match played at St Helens' home ground, Langtree Park.
The victory, which keeps the Reds' hopes of remaining in the competition, was built on a first-half double from skipper Conor Coady.
Liverpool completed the scoring in the second period when Adam Morgan found the net 13 minutes from time.
The result gave Liverpool some revenge after they fell to a 2-1 defeat to the same opposition in the competition at the end of last month in Germany.
Liverpool are now third in Group 5 behind leaders Rosenborg and Inter Milan. The Reds have one group game left, home to the Italians on January 8.
Inglethorpe's team were dominant throughout the clash and took the lead midway through the opening period when Krisztian Adorjan combined with defender Brad Smith. His cross to the back post was perfectly struck and Coady headed home from close range.
The advantage was doubled five minutes later when Morgan was upended by Dortmund keeper Cedric Wilmes inside the penalty area.
Coady took the responsibility from 12 yards and duly dispatched the spot-kick.
Both Marc Pelosi and Jordon Ibe both went close to making it three before Morgan saw an effort cleared off the line.
Adorjan was unfortunate to see a neat flicked effort come back off an upright in the second half but the Reds eventually wrapped up the points when Morgan coolly netted via a pass from his Hungarian team-mate.
There was still time for Adorjan to strike another effort against the woodwork but the win was already secured.
