UEFA Europa League
third round qualifying, first leg
7/29/2010

0 – FK Rabotnicki Skopje (MAC)
2 – FC Liverpool (ENG) —————— Ngog 17′, 58′

French U-21 international striker DAVID NGOG netted a brace FC LIVERPOOL as new manager ROY HODGSON fielded what was basically a reserve side for the UEFA Europa League third round qualfying, first leg match away in Skopje.

Although Serbia World Cup striker MILAN JOVANOVIC, a free transfer from Standard Liege of Belgium this summer, does make his season debut for the Reds and three others who played in South Africa this summer — Skrtel of Slovakia, Agger of Denmark and Kyrgiakos of Greece — appear for Liverpool against FK Rabotnicki Skopje, most of the big names at Anfield do not even dress for the match.

Ngog profits from a quickly taken free kick in midfield combined with clumsy defense at the back to notch his first goal; the 21-year-old former Paris St. Germain player, who has scored seven goals in 38 Premier League games for Liverpool since arriving in the summer of 2008, deftly volleyed home a cross from young English defender MARTIN KELLY to score a second for the Reds less than fifteen minutes after the halftime break concluded.

Ngog, who cost the Reds 1.5 million English pounds, pushed his European total in a Liverpool shirt to five goals from 13 matches.
