Peter Crouch described Andy Robertson as “world class” after the Liverpool FC defender scored in a 4-3 victory over Swiss side Salzburg on Wednesday night.

The Scotland international opened his Champions League account against Salzburg in their first game back at Anfield since their 4-0 victory over FC Barcelona back in May.

Robertson started the move that led to his goal when he won the ball before the 25-year-old connected with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross in the 25th minute.

The Liverpool FC left-back managed to steer a clinical finish past Salzburg goalkeeper to double the home side’s lead after Sadio Mane’s opener.

Former Reds defender Crouch hailed Robertson for a world-class performance in the Champions League at Anfield on Wednesday night.

“I can’t speak highly enough of Robertson’s performance in the first half,” Crouch told BT Sport.

“It was world class. It was top class. The run in the box was like Owen or Rush. You don’t see that every day from a full-back.”

Mane broke the deadlock in the ninth minute before Robertson doubled the Champions League holders’ lead midway through the first half.

Egypt international Mohamed Salah made it 3-0 before Hwang Hee-chan found the back of the net for the visitors either side of half-time.

Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haland levelled in the 60th minute before Salah sealed Liverpool FC’s win with his second of the night.

The Reds will taken on Belgian side Genk in their next group-stage fixture.

Liverpool FC won the Champions League title last season thanks to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the final back in June.
