[Video] Watch Adam Morgan Score Stunning 45-Yard ‘Alonso-Esque’ Goal For U-21’s

By on September 24, 2013

Liverpool Under-21’s took on Manchester City on Monday night and the game will be remembered for a superb goal by Adam Morgan.

With the score still at 0-0 in the 24th minute, Morgan picked up the ball just inside City’s half, saw the goalkeeper off his line and audaciously chipped him from fully 45 yards to give the visitors the lead. The Reds added a second in the second half to eventually run out 2-0 winners but Morgans effort was the big talking point.

The youngsters effort brought back memories of a similar goal scored by former Anfield favourite Xabi Alonso, who scored from inside his own half against Newcastle back at the start of the 2006 Premier League season.

Watch both Morgan’s and Alonso’s goals below. Which was better?
