Liverpool fans react to Joe Gomez's performance against Thailand XI

Anfield Kop

Gomez played at right-back during the first half of Liverpool's first pre-season tour game.

Summer signing Joe Gomez, who has been snapped up from Charlton Athletic, made his first appearance in a Liverpool shirt during the side's 4-0 win over a Thailand XI in the opening game of the club's pre-season tour. 

Gomez played 45 minutes at right-back as the side took a 2-0 lead into the interval. During his time on the field, he showed a determination to get forward while also demonstrating the skill set of a naturally strong defender. 

He was playing in an XI that many would regard as a predominantly second string selection, but he seemed to seize his opportunity, albeit against poor opposition in not the easiest of conditions as Liverpool had to endure sweltering heat and not the best of playing surfaces - with the second XI enduring a huge downpour as they wrapped up a comprehensive victory.

He may not be a regular starter for Liverpool when the Premier League season gets underway, but he looks to be decent cover for fellow new signing Nathaniel Clyne judging by his first 45 minutes for the Reds.

Overall, the reaction from Reds fans appears to be positive after getting their first glimpse of the club's latest younger.
