Ben Woodburn was ecstatic after his strike against Leeds United in the League Cup made him Liverpool’s youngest ever goalscorer.

Aged 17 years and 45 days, Woodburn broke Michael Owen’s record to become the youngest player to ever score for the club, etching his name into Anfield folklore.

Helping the Reds to the League Cup semi-finals in the process, it was certainly a memorable night for Woodburn.

Taking to Instagram after the game, Woodburn was clearly in awe at his achievement, simply telling his 102,000 followers: “What a night.”

The look of joy on Woodburn’s face as he peeled away to celebrate was clear, with the youngster scoring on only his second appearance for Liverpool, after making his debut against Sunderland.

While a host of his team-mates took the time to congratulate him on social media after the final whistle, Woodburn’s impact was further underlined by widespread praise from former Liverpool players.

This included Owen himself, who is now forced to settle with his record as the Reds’ second youngest goalscorer.
