Reds hit Malaysia XI for six
Charlie Adam scored from the spot on his first start for Liverpool as Kenny Dalglish's side beat a Malaysia XI 6-3 on Saturday. Having beaten Guangdong 4-3 in China three days ago, there were nine more goals in an entertaining clash in Kuala Lumpur. Adam, a £6.75million signing from Blackpool, was named in midfield alongside Jay Spearing, Raul Meireles and Conor Coady, with Andy Carroll in front of Joe Cole in attack. Adam was a lively presence in the opening exchanges and after 25 minutes played in Carroll, who went down in the area and earned the penalty. Adam had to take the spot-kick twice but sent the keeper the wrong way to make it 1-0. Mohammad Safiq Rahim equalised with a fine free-kick five minutes from half-time. Dalglish made 11 substitutions at the break and after 69 minutes, David Ngog scored following some poor defending. The Frenchman added a second moments later as the Reds swamped their opponents. Maxi Rodriguez made it 4-1 in the 75th minute before Mohammad Safi scored twice in as many minutes to put the hosts back in contention. Maxi then scored a second of his own in the last minute as the All-Stars chased the equaliser, only for Dirk Kuyt to wrap up a 6-3 victory in the closing seconds.
