Liverpool striker Ings fulfilled lifelong dream with Porto appearance

Liverpool forward Danny Ings fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams by making his Champions League debut against Porto last week.

The 25-year-old replaced Roberto Firmino late in the 5-0 win at the Estadio do Dragao.

"It was one of those things where you watch it as a kid and have a dream of playing in the competition," Ings told Liverpool's the club's website.

"So to come on and make my debut was a huge moment for me. I was very, very happy. But the most important thing was the 5-0 win - away at Porto, it's a huge result.

"To be part of this group in a competition like that is huge for me, from the levels that I've come from over the years.

"It was a huge moment but something I want to build on. I want to stay around it with the lads and try to win as many games as we can and see how far we can go in the competition."
