Liverpool starlet Solanke determined to walk into Anfield as a World Cup winner

Date Posted,June 8, 2017

England Under-20 star Dominic Solanke wants to walk into life at Liverpool with a World Cup medal in his pocket.

Solanke, who is joining the Reds on a free transfer from Chelsea, scored twice for the Young Lions as they came from behind to beat Italy in Jeonju on Thursday.

The 19-year-old has shone for Paul Simpson’s side in South Korea, and is hoping to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s first team next season – having grown frustrated with a lack of opportunities at Stamford Bridge.

Solanke has impressed in a number of attacking roles in the Far East and is optimistic of claiming success against Venezula on Sunday.

“It’s our time,” said Solanke, speaking to the FA’s official website . “Everyone will be rooting for us back home, so hopefully we can make them proud.

“The determination we have is what drives us on. We know that even if we’re losing we can bring it back. The disappointment we had in the Under-19 Euros last year [losing in the semi-final], going out in that, we know that feeling, so we want to go and win this time.

“There have been no special words from the manager, he’s just told us to put this behind us and focus on the next game, as he always does.

“There’s one more game that we need to go and win and if we do it right we’ll be champions.

“We’ve seen some of Venezuela’s games and we know what a good team they are. It’s down to the last two now, so you’re never going to have an easy final.”
