YOUNGEST LIVERPOOL TEAM IN HISTORY

The youngest team in the history of Liverpool Football Club have qualified for  the fifth round of the FA Cup by defeating Shrewsbury 1-0 at Anfield before 52,399 Wednesday. The first team had been rested  after an earlier decision by the League to take a 2-week break in February for the top-flight teams.

The own-goal by Ro-Shaun Williams landed the historic qualification to Liverpool whose youthful team with 7 outfield teenagers and group average of 19 years and 102 days demonstrated bravery and acme under the coaching expertise of U-23s manager, Neil Critchley. The enthused trainer later paid tribute to the Reds manager, Jurgen Klopp who had stayed away from Anfield in protest at the 4th round replay, saying Klopp had spoken to the team at a distance at half-time and end of the match.

By the historic qualification that now sets up a 5th round tie with Chelsea, Curtis Jones becomes the youngest first-team captain in Liverpool history.
