Danny Ings got off the mark in a Liverpool shirt by scoring the second goal in their pre-season friendly victory over Adelaide United in Australia this afternoon.
The former Burnley striker, who joined the Reds on a free transfer earlier this summer, came on as a second-half substitute at the Adelaide Oval to seal a 2-0 win.
Ings was introduced in place of Divock Origi on 68 minutes, immediately after James Milner had opened the scoring with his second Liverpool goal in as many pre-season games.

England Under-21 star Ings joined his fellow new signing on the scoresheet on 88 minutes by calmly rounding the keeper from a Nathaniel Clyne pass and slotting home. Watch the goal in the below video.
It was this type of composed finishing which helped Ings bag 12 times in Burnley’s 2014-15 Premier League relegation campaign and bring him to the attention of some of England’s top clubs.
According to the Daily Express, the 22-year-old turned down Tottenham Hotspur, who finished above the Reds in the final table last season, to join Liverpool upon the expiration of his Burnley contract.
Ings could soon face added competition in the striking ranks at Anfield, with Sky Sports reporting that Aston Villa target man Christian Benteke is scheduled for a medical with the club on Monday.
