SANTA CLARA---Some 5,000 miles from home,
the sounds of "You ll Never Walk Alone," Liver-
pool FC s unofficial anthem, billowed from Levi s
Stadium in California during warm-ups.
Fan support for one of the world s most popular
sports teams was apparent throughout the night
while Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino scored
and Liverpool beat AC Milan 2-0 in an International
Champions Cup exhibition game Saturday night
at Levi s Stadium.

big club it is," Liverpool midfielder James Milner
said. "It s great to come out all the way to the
other side of America and be so far away from
home, it shows that these guys are always sup-
Origi opened the scoring in the 59th minute off
an assist from Alberto Moreno.
Firmino scored 14 minutes later on a sliding kick
off a deflected pass from Sheyl Ojo.
Origi s goal followed a first half in which Liverpool
put heavy pressure on AC Milan. The Reds outshot
AC Milan 5-2, had five corner kicks to their oppo-
nent s one and had the only two blocks in the half.
Origi broke Liverpool s scoreless streak of 104
minutes to start the tournament. The Reds were
coming off a 1-0 loss to Premier League rival
Chelsea FC. Their next game will be against FC
Barcelona on Saturday in London.
"Good performance for the boys," Milner said.
"I think we dominated most of the game, we looked
pretty sharp. Obviously it s still preseason and
obviously results don t mean too much but it was
nice to get win."
Milan goalkeeper Gabriel Vasconcelos Ferreira
had three saves.
