Despite missing in the shootout, Patrick Bamford scored a penalty in the 120th minute to take the game to penalties. His goal cancelled out Suso’s strike, which looked likely to be the winner. Earlier in the night, teenager Jordan Rossiter gave the Reds the lead, only for Adam Reach’s header to cancel it out.
