Diogo Jota forces fuming manager to leave match early as Liverpool man stars in huge 9-0 win – Liverpool Echo

Liverpool players will return back to England later this week ahead of Saturday’s game at Wolves
Diogo Jota enjoyed a night remember for Portugal yesterday evening, scoring twice and providing an assist during a resounding 9-0 victory over Luxembourg.
Left on the bench by Roberto Martinez for Portugal's Euro 2024 qualifier versus Slovakia on Friday, the Liverpool forward completed the full 90 minutes on this occasion as his country took control of Group J to take a major step towards securing their place at next year's tournament in Germany.
Jota scored his first goal of the evening after being played through on goal by Bruno Fernandes and made no mistake with a resounding finish past the goalkeeper. Ten minutes later and the 26-year-old teed up team-mate Ricardo Horta to fire home a strike of a similar ilk, before adding a second finish of his own from inside the area with 13 minutes remaining.
It was a certainly a tough night for opponents Luxembourg, whose manager had seen enough by the time Fernandes made it 8-0 in the 83rd minute and decided to head down the tunnel and back to the dressing room.

Luxembourg under-21s fared no better, suffering a 3-0 loss to an England side featuring Harvey Elliott. Selected to start this U21 European Championship qualifier, the Reds' midfielder was unable to contribute a goal or assist but did see out the entirety of the contest to kick off their Group F campaign with three points.
The 2023 remake of an iconic LFC kit from the 1995/96 season features a crew-neck with a digital effect treatment layering green tones, described as green spark, poison green and pine green. It will be worn by the Reds on the road throughout the 2023/2024 campaign.

In Group B, Ben Doak lead the line for Scotland under-21s as they were narrowly defeated 1-0 by Spain. There was the potential for two Liverpool stars to be going head-to-head in this game, though Stefan Bajcetic was benched and failed to emerged during the 90 minutes. The Spaniard will soon be hoping for his first Liverpool minutes of the season, having not featured for the club since March due to his injury setback.
