Liverpool Forward Roberto Firmino Played A Very Different Game For Brazil Last Night

Liverpool Forward Roberto Firmino Played A Very Different Game For Brazil Last Night

Roberto Firmino played a very different type of game for Brazil last night, scoring twice in a 5-0 victory over Bolivia.

The former Hoffenheim man had been on rather underwhelming run of form for Liverpool and was hooked after a horrendous performance in the 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa prior to the international break.

Playing almost as a false nine to accommodate wide forwards Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, he nearly went a whole season without finding the net in the league at Anfield while he's yet to score in the Premier League so far this term.

The first was a tap-in at the far post after a perfect cross from left-back Renan Lodi, with the second seeing him involved in the build-up by dropping deep but making a darting run to the near post to get on the end of Neymar's pinpoint delivery from the left.

Although he does contribute in other ways in terms of his pressing, link-up and assists, Liverpool fans are hopeful that their No.9 has indeed rediscovered his shooting boots.

Firmino notched 12 goals in all competitions last term, with nine coming in Liverpool's Premier League title win.
