Ryan Kent and Cameron Brannagan were on target as Liverpool’s under-21s drew 2-2 with American USL side Sacramento Republic in Reno, Nevada on Wednesday.
The match was the second game against the Californian side on a mini post-season tour for Michael Beale’s side.
Former Liverpool academy midfielder Daniel Trickett-Smith was on the scoresheet for Sacramento, having signed for the US side after being released by Liverpool earlier this month.
Kent opened the scoring after just five minutes, with a beautiful touch to lob the keeper from Kevin Stewart‘s long ball.
Sacramento equalised through an impressive long-range free-kick from Trickett-Smith before half-time.
The young Reds then went ahead again with another lovely goal from Brannagan in the 77th minute. The under-21s’ captain dribbled inside the box, beat a defender and curled a shot into the far top corner.
Beale’s side then conceded an equaliser against the run of play in the 90th minute, scored by Englishman Harry Williams.
