Rhian Brewster marked his return to action after 14 months on the sidelines with two goals for Liverpool Under-23s on Friday.
The 18-year-old had not played any football since suffering a serious ankle injury in January 2018.
He was given 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against American college side Northwestern University and made an immediate impact.
He scored a stunning first after just six minutes, whipping into the top corner from outside the penalty area, before adding a second from close range soon after.
Brewster has progressed through Liverpool’s academy ranks and came to prominence in 2017 when he starred in England’s triumphant Under-17 World Cup campaign in India, finishing as top scorer at the tournament with eight goals.
