Twitter reacts to Roberto Firmino no-look pass to Wijnaldum
Roberto Firmino is a footballer with a silky touch. The Liverpool striker also specializes in no-look goals. Against Norwich, he managed to showcase both traits.
The Brazilian showcased this sublime piece of skill against the Canaries in the first half. With Liverpool on the attack, Gini Wijnaldum pushed forward. The Dutchman pass the ball to Firmino who proceeded to play the ball onto Wijnaldum’s feet with a scooping action.
To add to the deft touch it took to make the pass, Firmino didn’t even have to look up to find his teammate. It looks like Firmino is bored of just scoring no-look goals that he is now showcasing the skill all over the pitch.
Unfortunately, the skill did not lead to a goal. However, it will go down as a moment of magic in what has been a rather dour match.
The 29-year-old was in the thick of the action as Liverpool took the game to Norwich. The Reds started off brightly and the number Nine was in the midst of it.
The striker scored twice in Liverpool’s last visit to Carrow Road as the Reds famously won 5-4 thanks to an Adam Lallana winner at the death. Firmino has stuck to scoring just away goals so far this season. All of the player’s 10 goals this season have come away from him with him still waiting to break his Anfield deadlock.
Liverpool fans were blown away by the Brazilian’s skill and took to Twitter to sing the striker’s praises. We take a look at some of the tweets below
