Joao Teixeira reflects on a special night at Anfield for the Liverpool midfielder
Joao Teixeira has taken to Instagram to reflect on his first Liverpool goal at Anfield.
The Portuguese midfielder was a bright spark in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield for the visit of Exeter City in their FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday night.
Joe Allen and Sheyi Ojo scored either side of half-time to all but seal Liverpool’s place in the fourth round after a 2-2 draw with Exeter at St James’s Park earlier this month.
But Teixeira was rewarded for a slick performance with his first Liverpool goal in front of the Kop as the former Sporting Lisbon youngster sealed a 3-0 win with six minutes remaining.
The 23-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on Tuesday ahead of the FA Cup replay, posted a photo of his goal on his Instagram page and wrote:
“Great win tonight , the boys played very well . Happy for my first goal at Anfield ⚽️🙏🏽”
Liverpool will face West Ham United in the FA Cup fourth round at Anfield.
The Reds make the trip to Norwich City in their next Premier League game at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.
