Santa Clara - Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino scored and Liverpool beat AC Milan 2-0 in an International Champions Cup exhibition game Saturday night at Levi's Stadium.

Origi opened the scoring in the 59th minute off an assist from Alberto Moreno.

Firmino scored 14 minutes later on a sliding kick off a deflected pass from Sheyl Ojo.

Origi's goal followed a first half in which Liverpool put heavy pressure on AC Milan. The Reds outshot AC Milan 5-2, had five corner kicks to their opponent's one and had the only two blocks in the half.

Origi broke Liverpool's scoreless streak of 104 minutes to start the tournament. The Reds were coming off a 1-0 loss to Premier League rival Chelsea FC. Their next game will be against FC Barcelona on Aug. 6 in London.

Milan goalkeeper Gabriel Vasconcelos Ferreira had three saves.

Milan will play Chelsea FC on Aug. 3 in Minneapolis.

The July 22-Aug. 13 exhibition tournament features 17 teams playing on four continents; 10 in the United States and Europe, three in China and four in Australia.
