Only Roberto Firmino Could Pull Off A No-Look, Back Heel Nutmeg While On The Floor

Roberto Firmino has added another 'no-look' technique to his armory on this glorious Saturday afternoon, embarrasing Cardiff City midfielder Víctor Camarasa in the process.

The Liverpool forward somehow nutmegged the Spaniard with a cheeky backheel, which eventually found itself to teammate Alberto Moreno.

I've never said this before, and never expect to ever again. but this is a truly outrageous no-look, backheel, on the floor nutmeg.

How's he managed this, then?

Firmino didn't manage to find the scoresheet on Saturday afternoon, but goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane extended Liverpool's incredible run of form in recent weeks, while Xherdan Shaqiri scored his first goal for the club.

Cardiff managed to pull one back thanks to Callum Paterson's late consolation but Jurgen Klopp's side once again impressed at Anfield, winning 4-1.

'Bobby' Firmino's nutmeg certainly got people talking throughout:




We're fully expecting Firmino to pull on a pair of goalkeeper gloves against Arsenal, throw the ball through Mesut Ozil's legs without looking and run off celebrating.

Don't let us know, Bobby.
