Liverpool midfielder Rafael Camacho delighted with first senior goal

Liverpool midfielder Rafael Camacho was delighted to score in their friendly win at Tranmere Rovers.

Camacho won praise from Reds boss Jurgen Klopp in the post-match.

And he told Liverpoolfc.com: "Very good, to get my first goal for Liverpool was a major feeling.

"I just played a one-two with Sheyi [Ojo] and I kept running, got the ball and I placed it."

Underlining his desire to impress the boss, the Portugal youth international added: "It was another good opportunity and good to get another 45 minutes.

"The boss is asking me to do a job as a right-back for him. He wants to see me defending-wise and I'm just trying to do my best to help the team.

"[I want] to impress and give everything everyday to show the boss and help the whole team and show I can be a part of this Liverpool squad and go from there."
