Liverpool won their final pre-season friendly last night.Subsitute Andriy Voronin scored an injury time winner to give the Reds a 1-0 victory over Lazio at Anfield yesterday evening.
Lazio went straight up the other end, won a free kick and from the resulting cross bundled in a goal. However, their would be equaliser was disallowed for offside and seconds later the referee blew time on Liverpool's pre-season campaign.
The three minutes of injury time last night contained more action than the preceding 90 minutes. Although Fernando Torres, Robbie Keane and Xabi Alonso tried their luck all were shooting high or wide. Daniel Agger brought a good save from the Lazio keeper from a corner while Dirk Kuyt fired a soft shot close to the goalie midway through the second half. Other than that it was a dull game with the players clearly having one eye on Wednesday's Champions League qualifier against Standard Liege.
