Liverpool striker Brewster taking Sancho, Foden inspiration

Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster admits he is taking inspiration from his World Cup U17 winning England teammates.

As he recovered from knee injury, he has seen Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho make their mark at Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

“I speak to Phil and Jadon, they are doing really well," Brewster told the Liverpool Echo. “It gives me more motivation, really. It shows that it can be done.

“We're in a WhatsApp group and we send each other messages individually to see how we are getting on. I speak to Jadon here and there.

“They are an inspiration, of course. Seeing what they are doing at such a young age... it's just a bit of added motivation and it shows you that it can be done.

“To be honest, I just want to be out there, showing people what I can do and what I have been missing since I have been out. I can't wait to be back."
