Sunderland bagged a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Friday, in the Barclays U18 Premier League.
Unlike their first team counterparts, Sunderland are fourth in the table and have high hopes for a top three finish.
Toni Gomes had put Liverpool in front only for Elliot Embleton to equalise with a quality free-kick that gave the goalkeeper no chance.
The Embleton free-kick came on 78 and Andrew Nelson won it for Sunderland in stoppage time.
Perhaps this strike will propel Embleton closer to Sam Allardyce’s first team?
