What Dreams Are Made Of! – Ben Woodburn, aged just 17 years and 45 days, is the youngest ever Liverpool FC scorer!
Ben, who made his Liverpool first team debut only last weekend, has become the youngest ever club scorer as the Reds reached the EFL Cup semi-final last night, in their match against Leeds United.
Named as substitute, Ben was brought on in the 67th minute.
And just 14 minutes later, Ben (in front of the Kop) hammered home a finish from close range following a delightful little flick from Wijnaldum.
This truly is what dreams are made of!
At 17 years and 45 days, Ben Woodburn eclipsed another Cestrian, Michael Owen – the latter was in attendance to see his 18 year record broken and later congratulated Ben!
With a match attendance of over 52,000, Liverpool won the game 2-0.
This morning's press comments by Jurgen Klopp are all over the front pages ... his objective: to protect this very young talent from press (and Website) intrusion!

And a reminder ... Ben is 'Tattenhall's Treasure' ... he is a former pupil of Tattenhall Park Primary School and The Bishop Heber High School.
