Liverpool sealed their third win of pre-season on Sunday evening, running out 2-0 victors away to Championship side Wigan Athletic.
After triumphs over Tranmere Rovers and Fleetwood Town, the Reds took to the DW Stadium to take on more challenging opposition in Gary Caldwell’s Wigan.
Despite Caldwell naming a youthful squad following the Latics’ clash with Manchester United the previous day, the Scot saw his side produced a strong performance in the first half.
Only the majestic Philippe Coutinho, making his first appearance of pre-season, looked likely to beat Wigan goalkeeper Lee Nicholls, hitting the woodwork on two occasions.
But after eight changes from Jurgen Klopp at half-time, Liverpool found more fluency moving forward.
Woodburn doubled Liverpool’s lead with a well-taken strike shortly after, with the 16-year-old adding to his tally for pre-season.
Liverpool’s next pre-season friendly comes against Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night, before Klopp takes his squad to the US for clashes with Chelsea, AC Milan and AS Roma.
Speaking after the game, the German revealed that he will have his full squad back together by July 26, and that he would be taking two of his impressive young players as part of his touring squad.
Woodburn will no doubt be considered, after a string of mature performances in Klopp’s attack already this summer.
