CHICAGO - Raheem Sterling scored in the fifth minute in Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Olimpiakos on Sunday at Soldier Field in the International Champions Cup.
Sterling beat goalkeeper Balazs Megyeri with a leaping, right-footed half-volley from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner in Liverpool's Pool B opener.
Gevorg Ghazaryan nearly tied the match for Olimpiakos (1-1) in the 49th minute with a rocket off his right foot from the top of the box, but the shot squarely hit the bar and caromed off mark.
Olimpiakos had a chance in stoppage time, but Andres Samaris' right-footed shot from just outside the box was knocked away by Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones.
