Picture: Millwall loanee nabs Balotelli's shirt after cup tie

JAKE Goodman wasn't expecting to play against Liverpool when he moved from Millwall to AFC Wimbledon on loan in November.

But a plum cup draw for the League Two Dons saw Goodman, 21, line up against the Premier League giants in an enthralling FA Cup third round tie on Monday evening.

The young Lions centre back, who picked up a booking for clattering into Steven Gerrard, was singled out by pundit Danny Mills as one of Wimbledon's most impressive players.

So while Gerrard's brace saw the Kingsmeadow side suffer a narrow 2-1 defeat, Goodman can be proud of his performance.

And he managed to lay his hands on the much-coveted shirt of Italy international Mario Balotelli at the full time whistle. Not a bad memento!

    Have to say watching the game last night Ollie has to get him back at the den and into the 1st team. He played brilliantly and showed a lot of fight which is what our fans want to see.
    I see on twitter last night that I am not the only one who thinks this with Beevers, Dunney and Shittu all being slagged off. I agree with all these people that say maybe Goodman and Nelson should be given a go together. Hopefully Millwall will do the right thing and actually play talent, rather than letting another competitive side in our league have them for nothing.

      @kentlion: recall him in time for the Chelsea game and he can pick up another shirt to add to the collection 😉

        @MFC Lion: b******* he's cup tied obviously.

        Oh well, a solid performance all the same and certainly expect to see if starting for us in the near future.

    A great performance by Jake Goodman and will be good to see him and Nelson alongside each other in years to come. Well done Jake !.
