FC United of Manchester’s academy team went down 5-2 against a Liverpool FC Foundation Football College International Students XI in a friendly match encounter on a snowy Broadhurst Park 3G on Friday afternoon.
The visitors started off the brighter and it was no surprise when they opened the scoring on 17 minutes; JOE NASH slotting home unopposed.
STEVE AFFLECK netted an equaliser for the Young Reds on 35 minutes with a low free kick that deceived Ben Kadman in the Liverpool goal before the away team regained the lead just a minute later when TEJAN BRIMA fired in a brisk shot that goalkeeper Sulaiman Sajjad couldn’t quite keep out.
On 57 minutes, PAUL QUILLIAM added a third for the visitors, and on 60 minutes the same player made it 4-1.
Worse was to follow for the Young Reds as JOE NASH scored his second on 64 minutes to make it 5-1.
JOE COCKER’s 87th minute free kick into the top corner gave the home side a late consolation, but the Liverpool XI were good value for their 5-2 win.
