Milner outstanding as Liverpool defeat Brisbane Roar

Liverpool's new No7 James Milner hit the winner as the Reds came from behind to defeat Brisbane Roar 2-1 in Queensland today.

Milner struck on 75 minutes to seal a turnaround for the Reds and secure a second successive win on the summer tour.

Adam Lallana had started the comeback with a sublime conversion after Dimitri Petratos put the hosts in front with a well-executed goal.

Jamie Young impressed between the posts for Brisbane, denying Danny Ings and Jordon Ibe with inspiring saves.

But he was beaten for the winner by Milner, who nutmegged a defender and forced the ball over Young.

The victory followed up a 4-0 result in Bangkok and signs off this leg of the trip around the world ahead of the next stop in Adelaide.
