Mohamed Salah wasted no time in returning to goalscoring form as Liverpool came from behind to beat Manchester City 2-1 in New Jersey.
The Egypt forward, who scored 44 goals in 52 games for the Reds last season, cancelled out Leroy Sane's second-half goal barely a minute after coming on as a substitute in front of a 52,000 crowd.
Salah had another header cleared off the line and hit the bar.
Sadio Mane's injury-time penalty won the International Champions Cup match.
Salah and Senegal forward Mane were both playing for the first time since their countries were knocked out of the World Cup at the group stage.
City's Bernardo Silva - whose Portugal side went out at the last-16 stage - made his first pre-season appearance, but the Blues are still without 15 other players who were on duty in Russia.
"It is incredible what we have done with the players we have for 75 minutes against the Champions League finalists," said City boss Pep Guardiola after the game.
