Liverpool’s under-19’s team have been reinstated into the NextGen tournament after Tottenham Hostpur withdrew from the competition after admitting fielding an ineligible player.
Tottenham won 1-0 in the quarter-final at White Hart Lane on Tuesday night – despite Liverpool’s dominance in the game.
A NextGen statement announced:
We can only applaud the Club for demonstrating such impeccable levels of sportsmanship and for acting in a manner which recognises the good spirit of both the Tournament and the game itself. We thank both clubs for their help and support in making this first year of the event such a success and we look forward to welcoming Liverpool to the semi-finals.”
Liverpool will now face either Barcelona or Ajax in the semi-final – at Anfield.
Striker Adam Morgan tweeted “Just found out the news from the nextgen absolutley buzzing.. Well deserved I think!!!!!!! Yessss boyssss”
