Video: Dominic Solanke Scores England U20 Winner Days After Sealing Liverpool Move

Dominic Solanke scored England Under 20s’ winner against Mexico this afternoon to book a World Cup semi-final spot.

The 19-year-old striker is currently in South Korea appearing for the Three Lions youth side in the tournament.

And he’s proved pivotal in their quarter-final clash with Mexico this afternoon, netting the only goal of the game to set up a semi-final meeting with Italy on Thursday evening.

It wasn’t the cleanest of finishes from Solanke, but it doesn’t matter for England – and Liverpool fans will be delighted to see their newly-acquired youngster getting in amongst the goals just a week after he signed a free transfer with the Anfield club:

Solanke had been linked with a number of other top clubs after deciding his future wouldn’t be at Stamford Bridge.

But Liverpool beat off competition from Celtic and RB Leipzig to sign Solanke and he’ll offer competition in the Reds frontline next term.

It’s not clear if he’ll be an automatic starter given Jurgen Klopp has other quality attackers and should also strengthen his strikers further throughout the summer.

However, Solanke – who made just one appearance for the Blues first team – should get a much better chance to stake a claim for first team football in the Premier League with Liverpool.
