Watch: Firmino sends player for hotdog with brilliant skill in Liverpool friendly


Despite having to play in an empty stadium, Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino is still trying to put on a show. 

The Reds stepped up their preparations for the resumption of the Premier League season with a behind-closed-doors friendly against Blackburn Rovers earlier this week.

Jurgen Klopp’s side cruised to a comfortable 6-0 win thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Naby Keita, Takumi Minamino, Joel Matip, Ki-Jana Hoever and Leighton Clarkson.

Firmino wasn’t able to get on the scoresheet, but he managed to showcase his amazing skills during the game.

The Brazil international was surrounded by two Blackburn players and used some great footwork to change the direction of the ball while sending the defender for a hotdog.
