Video: Watch Liverpool’s Sheyi Ojo Ghost in Unmarked to Score Against Roma

Liverpool fans will continue to be encouraged with the pre-season form of Sheyi Ojo, after the midfielder scored in the Reds’ friendly with Roma.

Jurgen Klopp’s side played the last match of their American tour against the Serie A giants, turning out in front of a 30,000 capacity crowd inside St. Louis’s Busch Stadium, and found themselves behind to a lovely Edin Dzeko strike just after half-an-hour.

Liverpool huffed and puffed, with Daniel Sturridge guilty of missing several gilt-edged chances, before Ojo brought his side level.

The 19-year-old winger is more synonymous with tricks and flicks, but here he displays his ability to evade defenders by making a cleverly-timed run onto Roberto Firmino’s header:

Decent finish, eh?

Ojo spent last season on loan at Wolves in the English Championship but after his goal tonight, and several other decent showings during the off-season, could this be a breakout campaign for the England under-21 international?
