Liverpool’s UNDER 17s attract incredible 35,000 crowd

Liverpool’s under 17s drew an incredible crowd of 35,000 as they beat Frenz United at Sultan Agung Stadium in Indonesia on Wednesday.

The Reds youngsters were victors, 3-2 after going 2-0 up early on in front of an incredible atmosphere in Asia.

The match was part of a mini-tour for the Under 17s, who beat Frenz United Malaysia 2-0 at the weekend.

The atmosphere in Indonesia drew praise from Robbie Fowler, who described the support as “magnificent”.

Incredibly, the attendance was just 4,000 less than Barcelona had at the Nou Camp for their Spanish Cup match against Getafe on Wednesday night, and, more than Everton had for their FA Cup match against QPR on Saturday.

Some of the young Liverpool players certainly enjoyed the experience, several tweeting that it was the best experience of their life:
