The Incredible Story Of 11-Year-Old Lad Who Lifted The Carabao Cup With Liverpool's Entire Team

The Incredible Story Of 11-Year-Old Lad Who Lifted The Carabao Cup With Liverpool's Entire Team

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson invited an 11-year-old boy to lift the Carabao Cup on Sunday evening and the young lad has spoken for the first time.


As Sky Sports cameras panned to the Reds lifting their ninth League Cup after defeating Chelsea at Wembley, an unfamiliar face got his hands on the trophy.

That'll be Beau Brown, who snuck away from his dad Terrence and older brother to get a closer look at Jurgen Klopp's side.

"So I have a black eye and Alisson noticed and asked me about it," Beau told Express Sport.

"That's how I got talking to him. I just said, 'I was playing footy, I went for a header and headed the kid's head instead of the ball!'

"Then he lifted me up and took me with the team, I just felt like a player to be honest.

"Jurgen asked me about it too and Virgil [van Dijk] and Mohamed Salah were laughing at me. Then they all shook my hand."

Beau plays in central defence and represents Liverpool Schools FA so there's always a chance he lifts silverware for the club himself in the future.

It probably won't feel as heavy a few years down the line though.

Beau continued: "I wanted to get my hands on the trophy and I knew I was going to get my hands on the trophy.

"It was dead heavy! It felt like I was lifting weights up."

Terrance admitted he didn't see that his son got to hold the trophy and quickly scrambled to get a photo of it.

A great gesture from the Liverpool squad who could've given the youngster one of the best moments of his life.

The game was an entertaining affair despite ending 0-0 after 120 minutes and Liverpool ran out 11-10 winners in the penalty shootout.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was brought on for the shootout in place of Edouard Mendy, blasted his spot kick high and wide.

Liverpool are still on for a quadruple this season, having realistic chances of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

They continued their fine form on Wednesday evening by defeating Norwich City 2-1 in the FA Cup fifth round.
