Friendly : Liverpool and Sporting Play Out 2-2 Draw



Bruno Fernandes, who has been linked with Manchester United, excelled with a goal and an assist as Liverpool ended their US tour with a 2-2 draw with Sporting.

The Portuguese midfielder scored a fortuitous opener inside five minutes at Yankee Stadium when his routine effort from 25 yards was misjudged by Simon Mignolet and deflected in.

Liverpool responded well and Divock Origi poked in when Jordan Henderson's header was saved (20) and they took a half-time lead when Georginio 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 half when Fernandes sold Trent Alexander-Arnold with a lovely turn before feeding Wendel to slot in the equaliser.

Despite forcing a number of saves out of Mignolet as the game wore on, the Portuguese side could not find a winner.
