Liverpool vs Shrewsbury: Visitors’ OG sees young Reds seal FA Cup progression



Ro-Shaun Williams’ own goal condemned League One side Shrewsbury Town to a 1-0 defeat by a young Liverpool side in the FA Cup fourth round.

Liverpool’s youngest-ever side earned a place in the FA Cup fifth round as Ro-Shaun Williams’ calamitous own goal gave the Reds a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.
With Jurgen Klopp having refused to field any of Liverpool’s first-team regulars in Tuesday’s replay, as well as handing academy coach Neil Critchley the reins, a group with an average age of 19 years and 102 days battled to victory at Anfield.

Ultimately, it was a huge slice of good fortune which sealed the win – Shrewsbury defender Ro-Shaun Williams heading Neco Williams’ crossfield ball into the visitors’ net in the 75th minute.
