Watch: Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino scores brilliant brace for Brazil
While Roberto Firmino’s goalscoring record for Liverpool has often been criticised, he displayed his poacher’s instincts in Brazil’s 5-0 win over Bolivia.
The striker is an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s front three but provided just 12 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions in 2019-20.
He started Brazil’s opening World Cup qualifier on Friday and Marquinhos put the home side 1-0 up with a header after 16 minutes.
Firmino doubled their lead in the 29th minute, converting Renan Lodi’s cross from close range.
The 29-year-old then ran from inside his own half and showed impressive movement to meet Neymar’s cross in the 48th minute.
