Naby Keita scores in Liverpool friendly win over Stuttgart

Naby Keita scored as Liverpool recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Rhian Brewster and Roberto Firmino were also on target as Jurgen Klopp’s men stepped up their preparations for next weekend’s Community Shield game against Arsenal.

Keita started alongside Egypt and Senegal forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Firmino opened the scoring in the 15th minute after good work from Curtis Jones. The Brazilian then turned provider to create the second for Keita five minutes before the interval.

Brewster, who impressed on loan at Swansea last season, added the third from a James Milner pass with 68 minutes gone.

Liverpool wrap up their Austrian training camp with a second friendly against RB Salzburg on Tuesday.
