Trent Alexander-Arnold drops jaws with first European goal for Liverpool
Trent Alexander-Arnold impressed on Saturday, but he dropped jaws for Liverpool on Tuesday.
18-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of the bright sparks in Liverpool's 3-3 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road in their Premier League 2017/18 opener.
Although the Reds' defence received more than its fair share of criticism for conceding a three goals, youngster Alexander-Arnold received almost universal praise for his performance.
After impressing everyone at the weekend, the England u-19 international was handed the opportunity to start for Liverpool's Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim on Tuesday evening.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is the first football ever with a surname for a first name, and TWO first names for a surname. #WATLIV

Fortunately for the Reds, he continued his fine form in the first half, breaking the deadlock with a wondrous strike.
The hot prospect stepped up to take the free-kick from 30 yards out and absolutely walloped it into the back of the net to score his very first goal in Europe for the Reds and hand them a crucial away goal heading into the second leg.
