18 year old UK Cypriot Lewis Koumas scored on his first Liverpool appearance playing against Southampton in the Emirates FA Cup.

Lewis was previously on the bench in the Liverpool v Burnley Premier League game and on Saturday in the Carabao League Cup Final v Chelsea.

His goal just before the haĺf time break when Bobby Clark drifted in from the left wing and played a superb pass into Lewis Koumas, who was making his first Liverpool appearance.

He takes a few steps inside before striking towards goal. It deflected off Jack Stephens’ leg and wrong-foots Joe Lumley to give Liverpool the lead.

Again Southamptòn were made to pay as Danns, on for Koumas to make just his third Liverpool appearance, ran on to Harvey Elliott’s pass to score with a lovely dinked finish at the Kop End.

Danns struck again two minutes from time, thumping the ball home after Southampton goalkeeper Joe Lumley had parried Conor Bradley’s shot into his path.

While Liverpool remain in contention for a quadruple, and can look forward to a mouth-watering meeting at Old Trafford in the last eight,

Koumas started pre-season last summer under the watchful eye of Reds U18s boss Marc Bridge-Wilkinson.

Koumas, who is the son of former footballer Jason, has been a regular at Anfield with his dad to watch his Reds heroes, while learning his own football trade in the Kirkby youth set-up.

Lewis is eligible to play for Wales, England and Cyprus.
