Bruno Fernandes (4′)
Man Utd target Bruno Fernandes excelled with a goal and an assist as Liverpool ended their US tour with a 2-2 draw with Sporting.
Liverpool responded well and Divock Origi poked in when Jordan Henderson’s header was saved (20) and they took a half-time lead when Giorginio Wijnaldum’s effort struck Luis Neto on its way past Renan Ribeiro a minute before the break.
Sporting got back on level terms nine minutes into the second period when Fernandes sold Trent Alexander-Arnold with a lovely turn before feeding Wendel to slot in the equaliser, but despite forcing a number of saves out of Mignolet as the game wore on, the Portuguese side could not find a winner.
