Samed Yesil and Jonjo Shelvey Stand Out, As Host of Young Liverpool Players Perform on International StageSamed Yesil scored twice as Germany U-19s beat an England side featuring Raheem Sterling and Adam Morgan on Thursday evening. You can watch his goals below.

The 18-year-old, who signed for Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen last week, was inspired during the 3-1 friendly win.

He found the net after two minutes of each half, and set up the final goal for teammate Sebastian Kerk, before getting a standing ovation as he was subbed in the 81st minute.

Sterling lasted 65 minutes, while Morgan was withdrawn with a quarter of an hour remaining.

Meanwhile, Jonjo Shelvey was also on top form as England U-21s prevailed 2-0 in Azerbaijan.

It was his free-kick that set up a glancing header for Steven Caulker to make it 1-0, and the midfielder put the seal on the victory with a well-taken volley late on.

The U-21s were skippered by Jordan Henderson for the Euro 2013 qualifier, while Martin Kelly also started.

Watch Yesil’s goals in the video below.
