FA Cup: Aribo Plays All 90 Minutes In Southampton Loss To Liverpool

Super Eagles midfielder, Joe Aribo played for the entire 90 minutes as Liverpool edged Southampton 3-0 in Wednesday’s FA Cup 5th round.

The Nigerian international who showed great skills and confidence had a brilliant display despite the defeat.

Southampton had a host of chances in the first half but having failed to make them count, they were punished when Koumas collected Bobby Clark’s pass and found the bottom corner as his low shot deflected off Saints captain Jack Stephens a minute before the break.

The visitors had further opportunities to level in the second period but remained profligate in front of goal.

Again they were made to pay as Danns, on for Koumas to make just his third Liverpool appearance, ran on to Harvey Elliott’s pass to score with a lovely dinked finish at the Kop End.

Danns struck again two minutes from time, thumping the ball home after Southampton goalkeeper Joe Lumley had parried Conor Bradley’s shot into his path.
