Voronin upstages new Liverpool recruits
Fernando Torres and Ryan Babel made their Liverpool debuts but were upstaged by fellow new recruit Andriy Voronin in the 3-2 defeat of Werder Bremen in Grenchen, Switzerland.
Summer signing Voronin and John Arne Riise helped the Reds to a 2-1 half-time lead before Voronin extended the advantage in the second half.
Torres, Babel and Yossi Benayoun were all introduced as second-half substitutes.
Liverpool enjoyed the perfect start as Voronin produced a cool finish after intercepting a poor pass and rounding the goalkeeper.
Kevin Schindler equalised for the Bundesliga side barely two minutes later.
However, Riise produced a trademark thunderbolt to restore the lead with a free-kick from distance which goalkeeper Tim Wiese should arguably have handled better.
Fifteen minutes into the second half Ukrainian Voronin, a free transfer from Bayer Leverkusen, put the game beyond Werder with a cunning finish after a brilliant Xabi Alonso pass.
Torres then replaced Voronin and saw chances of his own come and go before Hugo Almeida's late consolation for the Germans.
