Rhian Brewster playing his way into Liverpool Champions League final squad

Rhian Brewster is making a push for Liverpool's Champions League final squad.

Brewster sent Jurgen Klopp a timely reminder of his talents ahead of next month's Champions League final against Tottenham .

The 19-year-old striker showed his match-winning capabilities when he scored the only goal in Liverpool under-23s' win over their Club Brugge counterparts on Friday.

And he will be hoping he can make a similar impact from the bench in the all-English Champions League showdown on Madrid on June 1, when both Liverpool and Tottenham will be allowed to name 12 substitutes each. Brewster was on the bench for Liverpool's incredible 4-0 win over Barcelona that secured a place in the final.

U23 coach Neil Critchley told liverpoolfc.com: “It was nice to see Rhian score.

“It was a good standard game, it was a close game. As the scoreline suggests, there was nothing in the game between the two teams and it was decided by Rhian's penalty. It was a good end-of-season game for us."
