Grujic celebrates his debut goal for Liverpool

Marko Grujic scored on his debut for Liverpool as they sealed a 5-0 victory over Fleetwood in a pre-season friendly.

Ben Woodburn, 16, doubled the lead just after half-time, before Lucas and a Roberto Firmino double gave the Reds a solid win.

Manager Jurgen Klopp felt new signing Grujic enjoyed a “dream debut” on Wednesday evening.

The Serbian international, a £5.1m signing from Red Star Belgrade, also won a penalty – which Danny Ings missed – and hit the post on a lively first outing for his new club.

“He scored a goal in his first game in the first situation – it’s a dream,” said the German coach.

“You saw it, in a friendly game not often a player celebrates like him but obviously it was a big moment. It was nice to see.

Liverpool face Wigan next on Sunday before travelling to Huddersfield, then heading to California to take part in the International Champions Cup.
