Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi puts on impressive display in UEFA Youth League

​Budding Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi was on the scoresheet as the Austrian side lost 4-2 to Liverpool on matchday two in the UEFA Youth League on Wednesday afternoon.

The Germany youth international of Nigerian descent has been in sensational form for Salzburg youth teams since the start of the 2019/20 season and carried that form to the Totally Wicked Stadium.

Prior to the meeting against Liverpool U19s, Adeyemi had tallied 6 goals in nine appearances with four assists to his name.

The Munich-born youngster was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool and was courted by Manchester City and Chelsea in 2018 but Salzburg won the race to sign the striker.

Liverpool's Yasser Larouci broke the deadlock after five minutes but Adeyemi punished the Reds for poor defending when he restored parity in the 21st minute.

In the second half, David Affengruber's strike was cancelled out by Neco Williams before Curtis Jones and Rhian Brewster scored to secure three points for the home team.

Adeyemi has been named in the latest Germany U18  squad for a training camp in Krefeld next week (October 6-8).
