Last Saturday, Nyoni continued his impressive form by scoring the first goal and assisting the second goal for Liverpool U18s. He now boasts four goals and three assists in just five appearances at the U18 level.
Unfortunately, Nyoni’s contributions were not enough to secure victory, as Liverpool lost 5-3 to Fulham in a thrilling encounter at the AXA Training Centre.
Manager Marc Bridge-Wilkinson fielded a strong lineup featuring Kieran Morrison, Keyrol Figueroa, and the in-form striker Jayden Danns. Goalkeeper Kornel Misciur also made his return to the pitch after recovering from injury.
Fulham took an early lead through Callum Osmand, but Nyoni equalized with a brilliant finish after evading challenges in the penalty area. Nyoni then set up Danns to give Liverpool a 2-1 advantage with a lofted pass that allowed Danns to round the goalkeeper and score.
However, Fulham turned the game around by scoring four goals of their own. Jonathan Esenga’s free-kick, Lemar Gordon’s strike, Tom Olyott’s close-range finish, and Chibby Nwoko’s late effort put Fulham in the lead at 5-2.
Liverpool center-back Wellity Lucky scored a late consolation goal, heading home to reduce the deficit. Despite the loss, the performances of Nyoni, Danns, and other players will be encouraging for Bridge-Wilkinson, his staff, and the first-team observers.
