Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Sadio Mane scores first goal for the Reds in friendly

Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane scored his first goal for Liverpool as they thrashed a Barcelona side containing Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi in the International Champions Cup at Wembley.

Sane, a £34m summer signing, opened the scoring on 15 minutes before Javier Mascherano scored an own goal.

Divock Origi and Marko Grujic were also on the scoresheet in the second half.

England striker Daniel Sturridge missed the game with a hip injury, while James Milner limped off before half-time.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said Milner had injured his heel, with the Reds' Premier League campaign starting away at Arsenal on Sunday, 14 August.

"It is not too good," said Klopp. "He will have a scan and then we will know more."

The game drew the second largest attendance at Wembley with a crowd of 89,945.
