Liverpool were thumped 3-0 by Rosenborg in their latest NextGen clash.

With the likes of Conor Coady, Adam Morgan and Stephen Sama unavailable because of first-team duty in Russia, Rodolfo Borrell handed NextGen Series debuts to Scottish U18 stopper Ryan Fulton, left-back Joe Maguire and Czech defender Jakob Sokolik, while Swede Kristoffer Peterson made his first start in a central attacking role.

Borrell was also without the injured Brad Smith and striker Samed Yesil was also unavailable.

The game was watched by former Reds Vegard Heggem and Bjorn Tore Kvarme, and the home side stormed into a 3-0 lead inside the opening 30 minutes.
