LIVERPOOL will face Portugal's Sporting Lisbon in the final of the inaugural NexLions Cup youth tournament.

The English giants beat a Singapore Youth Selection 1-0 in their semi-final clash at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Friday evening.

German youth international Samed Yesil netted the winner with a cheeky back-heel effort just before the half-hour mark.

In an earlier match, Sporting booked their spot in Sunday's final after thrashing Manchester United 4-1.
