Great news for Socceroo Brad Smith who played for Liverpool overnight, laying on a brilliant cross for the sixth goal in the Reds’ 6-1 thrashing of Southampton in the Capital One Cup quarter finals.
The young Aussie came on at the 77th minute mark for Alberto Moreno and had an almost instant impact.
Smith delivered a superb cross four minutes from time for hero Divock Origi to claim a hat-trick in the comprehensive win.
The Socceroo, who is also part of the Olyroos campaign to qualify for Rio 2016, helped end a superb night for Jurgen Klopp’s men on the South Coast who now play Stoke in the semi-finals.
Other goal-scorers for Liverpool were the returning Daniel Sturridge (2) and Jordan Ibe.
