Reds teenager Sheyi Ojo scored the only goal for Liverpool, as they lost 2-1 to Roma in the United States.
The England born Nigerian player spoke to LFC TV after the game in St Louis.
“There’s a lot of positives to take from the game. We’ll assess the game and look forward to the next one,” Ojo told LFC TV.
“It was very tough, very humid and the pitch wasn’t the best but let’s not make any excuse. We could’ve done better today.
“Dejan knocked it across and I assumed he would, so I was there to knock it in.
But, the most important thing is the team. Everyone’s feeling stronger and we’re looking forward to the new season.”
Liverpool are flying straight back to the UK – scheduled to land at John Lennon Airport on Tuesday afternoon.
