Sheyi Ojo reflects on a memorable FA Cup night at Anfield for the 18-year-old Liverpool striker
Sheyi Ojo won’t forget Wednesday night in a hurry.
The 18-year-old made his Anfield debut in the 65th minute of their 3-0 win against Exeter City after he replaced Wales international Joe Allen.
Ojo needed just 19 minutes to put the FA Cup third-round replay out of the League Two side’s reach with Liverpool’s second of the night.
The Liverpool youngster’s left-footed finish had all the hallmarks of a Daniel Sturridge goal as he stylishly curled his finish past Robert Olejnik.
The former MK Dons winger took to Twitter to reflect on an unforgettable experience.

The Liverpool teenager, who was formerly a target of defending champions Chelsea, was named man of the match by BBC Sport for his outstanding 25-minute impact at Anfield.
Ojo scored two goals in 16 Championship appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers during a loan spell earlier this season.
