Liverpool Target Thiago Dropped A Midfield Masterclass For Spain Against Germany
Thiago's individual highlights for Spain against Germany prove he's one of the best midfielders in world football.
Liverpool target Thiago starred for Spain as they secured a draw against Germany in a Nations League clash on Thursday.
Jose Luis Gaya scored deep into stoppage time to cancel out Timo Werner's goal in the 51st minute.
But Thiago stole the show as he produced a masterful showing in the middle of the park.
He showed off his short and long range passing as well as his defensive side in an incredible outing.
Needless to say, Thiago's stunning performance on the international stage sent social media wild.
Thiago completed 97 passes in today's game against Germany (93.3% accuracy), more than any other player. He also touched the ball the most - 122 times.
World class. Need to wrap it up #LFC.

One Twitter user wrote: "What kind of leg sorcery was that pass at 22 seconds?! Genius player, stunning to watch. What a compilation!"
A second tweeted: "Thiago is a baller, he can defend & sprays the ball effortlessly."
A third added: "Iniesta and Xavi = Thiago."
Thiago remains heavily linked with Liverpool who're reportedly reluctant to meet Bayern Munich's £27 million valuation.
And the 29-year-old provided an update on his future following Germany vs. Spain.
He said: "I only think about the game against Ukraine. Afterwards, we will see.
"Bayern is my home and I am happy to be there."
Liverpool, meanwhile, secured their first ever Premier League title last season but Jurgen Klopp has only signed defender Kostas Tsimikas ahead of the new season.
Will Thiago, whose contract expires next summer, join Klopp's side? Watch this space.
