Carragher praises Liverpool supersubs Babel, Pacheco

Jamie Carragher praised Liverpool supersubs Ryan Babel and Dani Pacheco after their Europa League win over Unirea.

Babel provided the cross from the left which Pacheco headed back across goal for David Ngog to net the only goal of the game nine minutes from time.

"Ryan and Dani did very well when they came on and made a big contribution for the goal," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo. "They gave us a bit of a lift and more energy and that's what we needed. They made the difference."

It was Pacheco's third senior appearance and Carragher believes the young Spaniard has a big future.

"Pacheco came on and did well again," he added.

"He's a good lad as well and all of the lads get on with him very well. We are delighted for him to get his first team chance which he deserves."
