Liverpool have made some clever signings this summer. The Reds brought in an elite midfielder in Thiago Alcantara and a bargain backup in Kostas Tsimikas. One of the Reds most surprising signings had a belter of a game for his country this week. Diogo Jota netted two goals and assisted one for Portugal against Sweden.
Liverpool sign Jota
Over the summer Kopites were treated to the signing of Thiago Alcantara. A move that was much anticipated over the summer but most of us thought would never actually come to fruition.
A day later we were all shocked when Liverpool announced the signing of Diogo Jota from Wolves for £41m.
The Portuguese forward arrived just hours after we were first linked with him, destined to provide backup and competition for the front three.
Since then we’ve seen the 23-year-old score on his Premier League debut for the Reds against Arsenal.
Jota two goals and one assist for Portugal
Liverpool forward Diogo Jota scored two goals and bagged one assist for Portugal against Sweden on Wednesday night.
The versatile front man was the star of the show as his country beat the Scandinavian side 3-0.
Man City star Bernardo Silva opened to scoring after Jota unselfishly slid him in when haring in on goal.
Jota bagged one for himself just before halftime when he rifled one home after great control from a long ball into the box.
The ex-Wolves man’s second goal was one which Kopites will be drooling at as he cut in from the left hand side, gliding past Swedish defenders before firing past a helpless keeper.
What RTK has to say
Diogo Jota is going to be something truly special, I still can’t quite believe we managed to sign him.
Wolves have let a gem of a player go in what was otherwise a pretty strong window for the Midland club.
Sure, he was inconsistent towards the end of last season. Coaching from Jürgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders will soon sort out his streakiness and he’ll be fulfilling his potential in no time.
Fingers crossed he can carry this lethal form through to the Derby.
