Krisztian Nemeth, the name of a rising star

Yesterday saw Liverpool thrill with a 5-0 win over Singapore, a score largely due to our finest players. Among them there's a lad known as Krisztian Nemeth who made no mistake to make his presence felt as he scored a brace. He has undoubtedly won the heart of many reds and especially the boss, who keeps a close eye on everyone. He was qualified by Benitez afterwards as a 'great finisher'. Let's dig deeper and get to know Nemeth.

Well, Nemeth is a 5'10 striker born on 05/01/1989 in Gyor, Hungary. He formerly played for MTK Hungaria FC and Blackpool and is currently the most talked about player in the Liverpool FC Reserves squad. In the year 2007, Liverpool signed Nemeth on a three year deal as well as his compatriot Andras Simon from MTK Hungaria. Liverpool's scouts spotted Nemeth during the UEFA U17 championships where the boy impressed. The move was quick because it was clear that the guy would turn out to be a gem later on.

Liverpool were right to sign Nemeth - the Hungarian striker immediately started to build a reputation in the Liverpool ranks as his second match saw him score a brace against Man City. Again he would make no mistake showing his class a week later vs Everton as he finished the match with a couple of goals beside his name. All Liverpool supporters were starting to talk about him. In all, Nemeth hit the back of the net 9 times as he helped Liverpool Reserves clinch the national title at Anfield against Aston Villa in May 2008.

Afterwards in the same month Nemeth again proved his worth by scoring an important goal which helped Hungary beat Portugal to attain the European U19 Championships. His charm would even touch the coach of the national Hungary team as he handed him his first International cap. Injuries slowed him down a bit. He was loaned to Blackpool during the 2008/09 season and his very first appearance saw him with a broken cheekbone. He was forced to return to Melwood earlier than expected due to that.

To this date, Nemeth has never backed down and he proved it yesterday when he scored twice to help Liverpool lift that trophy. So, what do you think of the Hungarian hotshot? Do you see him capable of breaking into the first team and score plenty? Your views are welcome!
