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!
