Liverpool seem to be in great form ahead of the season as the Reds thrashed Manchester United 4-1 in the final game of the International Champions Cup.
The Swiss star was playing his first game for us and he was excellent throughout. The scoring started, whoever, when Mohamed Salah won a penalty for us and Sadio Mane put the ball into the net in the 28th minute.
The lead did not last long as Andreas Pereira struck home a wonderful free-kick but the real damage was done in the second half.
Shaqiri held off a challenge from a United defender and laid off the ball on the edge of the box for Daniel Sturridge to stroke it into the net, off the post.
Two quickly became three when we won another penalty, thanks to Andy Robertson. Sheyi Ojo, surprisingly, took the penalty and scored to make it 3-1 for us.
The goal of the game came in the 82nd minute as Liverpool completely dominated United throughout the fixture. The ball was looped back into the United penalty box and up stepped Shaqiri to smash home an incredible bicycle kick.
A goal and an assist on his first start for the Reds, Shaqiri was incredible and even though this was just a pre-season match, the Liverpool fans were ecstatic with the result and even more with new star, Xherdan Shaqiri.
Here are some of the reactions from the fans as they went berserk on Twitter.
Man like shaqiri what a player for 13 million pound this is bargain of the century #LFC
