Liverpool Starlet Of Nigerian Descent In Contention To Face Real MadridPublished: May 24, 2018
England U21 international of Nigerian descent, Dominic Solanke, could play in the UEFA Champions League final after he was named by Liverpool in their traveling party to Kiev.
The Reds will take on holders Real Madrid at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kiev on Saturday night as they bid for a sixth European title.
Solanke will compete with World Cup-bound stars Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for one of the striking positions.
The former Chelsea teen sensation has never competed in a final at club level since turning professional.
For the England national teams, he played in the final of last summer's Fifa U20 World Cup, and the showpiece game of the 2014 UEFA European Under-17 Championship in Malta.
Solanke figured for Liverpool in their last three matches, against Roma, Chelsea and Brighton & Hove.
Liverpool Squad: Karius, Clyne, Van Dijk, Wijnaldum, Lovren, Milner, Firmino, Salah, Henderson, Klavan, Moreno, Mane, Lallana, Mignolet, Can, Robertson, Ings, Solanke, Phillips, Jones, Ward, Woodburn, Camacho, Alexander-Arnold.
