Ki-Jana Hoever becomes fourth-youngest Liverpool scorer
Ki-Jana Hoever became the fourth-youngest goalscorer in Liverpool's history with his header at Milton Keynes Dons on Wednesday night.
The Dutch defender powered in the Reds’ second of the match during a 2-0 Carabao Cup victory at Stadium MK – a first senior goal for the club on just his second competitive appearance.
Only Ben Woodburn, Michael Owen and Jordan Rossiter have opened their account for Liverpool at a younger age.
