Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool squad have showcased a strong team spirit as they kicked off the 2015/16 season with two 1-0 wins so far, and players like Jordon Ibe and Joe Gomez are key to this.

The young pair enjoyed some time off at Melwood to take part in a #DizzyGoals challenge in support of The Global Goals.

The Global Goals is a worldwide initiative looking to improve the quality of life for all people.

According to their website: “On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders will commit to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years.

“End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. Fix climate change.

“The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people.”

Ibe and Gomez are just two of many footballers who have taken part in the challenge so far, with others including Gareth Bale, Harry Kane, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer.

With Ibe having already practised his dizzy penalty ability for The Redmen TV, the 19-year-old winger fared much better than new signing Joe Gomez.

Ibe hit the target, at least.

The Liverpool stars’ efforts are in support of The Global Goals’ aims, as the charity continued to describe:

If the goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them. You can’t fight for your rights if you don’t know what they are. You can’t convince world leaders to do what needs to be done if you don’t know what you’re convincing them to do. If the goals are famous, they won’t be forgotten.

We can be the first generation to end extreme poverty, the most determined generation in history to end injustice and inequality, and the last generation to be threatened by climate change.
