Christian Benteke: Liverpool striker scores in Swindon friendly
Christian Benteke scored on his first Liverpool appearance since joining the club from Aston Villa for £32.5m.
The Belgium striker hit a sublime 20-yard volley to put the Reds 1-0 ahead in a friendly away to Swindon Town.
Swindon responded through Jonathan Obika before Sheyi Ojo's late goal gave the Reds a 2-1 win ahead of their first Premier League match of the season away to Stoke City on 9 August.
"Christian's goal was incredible," said Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
"It was wonderful technique from the big guy."
Liverpool also included another summer signing, forward Roberto Firmino.
The 23-year-old Brazil international started alongside Benteke, with both players substituted after 67 minutes.
Midfielder Joe Allen went off early in the game with a hamstring problem which will require a scan on Monday.
"I think Joe was his hamstring, unfortunately, so that doesn't look so good for us," added Rodgers.
