Liverpool have been blessed with the front three. The Reds have enjoyed Jürgen Klopp’s attacking trident for four years now with the man in the middle often pulling out moments of magic. Liverpool fans have been left wowed by Roberto Firmino after a near assist for Brazil v Colombia.
Roberto Firmino at Liverpool
Liverpool signed Roberto Firmino in 2015 for £29m.
He arrived from Hoffenheim as an aggressively attacking midfielder.
Under Jürgen Klopp he became a new type of false 9.
Whereas the role typically involved drifting into deep pockets of space to drag defenders out of position, Bobby was also tasked with ferociously pressing the opposition.
During his time at the club he’s scored 87 and assisted 69 across 292 appearances for the Reds.
Brazil 2-1 Colombia
This week saw high drama in the Copa America.
Brazil beat Colombia 2-1 in controversial fashion.
The Colombians went ahead after just 10 minutes in extraordinary fashion when Luis Diaz acrobatically volleyed home.
The Brazilians equalised in the 78th minute when Roberto Firmino headed home.
However, the ball struck the referee in the build up, sparking Colombian protests.
In the last of 10 minutes additional time Brazil won the game with a Casemiro header from a corner.
Despite all the high drama, Kopites have been drooling over what could’ve been an iconic assist from Roberto Firmino for Brazil.
The Reds’ number nine skillfully nutmegged a defender to put Neymar through on goal but the PSG man could only hit the post after rounding the goalkeeper.
It was just Bobby doing Bobby things..
