Jordon Ibe’s low cross from the right was flicked on by James Milner, with Origi smashing the ball home from close range.

The goal came after a period of mounting pressure from Liverpool who finally wore down a resilient Helsinki defence.

Origi had only been on the pitch for 10 minutes, replacing Danny Ings as a second-half substitute.

After a slow first half, Liverpool pressed well in the second and Brendan Rodgers will be happy with a comfortable fitness exercise.

The Reds now go to Swindon Town on Sunday afternoon (4pm kick-off) for their final pre-season friendly of the summer before the Premier League gets underway next weekend.
