Sheyi Ojo was delighted to get minutes under his belt as he featured for Liverpool U21s in their game against Norwich City at Carrow Road last night.
The 18-year-old, who is returning from injury, played the entire 90 minutes of the Barclays U21 Premier League clash with the Canaries that finished 0-0.
The England youth international is currently out on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers, but the rules of the agreement allow the youngster to play for Michael Beale’s side.
“It's a great feeling,” he told Liverpoolfc.com. “But the most important thing was for the team to do well.
“[It was good] for me to get fitness because I haven't played for two weeks now so I wanted to come back and stay fit.
“I've got a game for Wolves on Boxing Day so hopefully I'll be involved in that.
“I thought we did well overall. The first half was a bit difficult because we were under pressure. But then as the game went on, I got into the game a bit more and we started to do well.
“We probably should have nicked the three points. The main positive was that we did well as a team and hopefully we can build on that.”
Ojo is enjoying a successful spell out on loan with the Championship club, making 18 appearances and finding the net twice to date.
He added: “I think I've done well. I think one criticism would be my consistency. I'm still young and I'm looking to improve every day. Hopefully I can get better.”
