Liverpool face Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round after the League One team beat Bristol City 1-0 last night.
The two teams needed a replay after the first draw ended in a 1-1 draw and despite Bristol being the favorite to progress, an 89th minute goal from Aaron Pierre ensured victory for the losers.
This made an appointment with the Reds with Jurgen Klopp’s men traveling to the Montgomery Waters Meadow stadium on Sunday 26 January.
And Shrewsbury striker Callum Lang has one more reason to cause discomfort: he’s a fan of Everton.
Lang was watching from the stands while his beloved Blues was eliminated from the third round by a young Liverpool.
But now the attacker has a chance to take revenge on Klopp’s team.
On loan from Wigan, Lang was introduced as a substitute for the second half in last night’s replay and was close to scoring the opening goal himself, forcing a nice save from Bristol’s Daniel Bentley.
The goalkeeper was unable to do anything about Pierre’s 25-yard strike or unbridled post-game celebrations when Town fans invaded the field at full-time whistle.
Lang tweeted his joy at having the opportunity to face Liverpool and avenge the defeat suffered by his childhood team.
He posted: “From sitting in the stands to watching Liverpool knock out the blues in the 3rd round to play against them in the 4th round.”
The striker may not have wanted Liverpool in the fourth round, but there is no doubt that he will now be desperate to get on the scoresheet and cause discontent.
