Watch: Roberto Firmino stuns commentator with superb touch
Roberto Firmino may not have got on the scoresheet in Brazil’s draw with Panama, but the Liverpool forward still produced one moment of magic which made commentator Ray Hudson scream in excitement.
Despite taking the lead through Lucas Paqueta, Brazil were held to a surprise 1-1 draw in the friendly, as Panama equalised minutes after going behind thanks to Adolfo Machado’s header.
Firmino started ahead of Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus in attack, flanked by former Liverpool team-mate Philippe Coutinho and Everton’s Richarlison.
And with the score at 1-1, the striker created a good chance for Paqueta to bag a second with a superbly nonchalant touch, only for the AC Milan star to fail to convert.
beIN Sports commentator Ray Hudson is not exactly known for his subtlety, but it’s fair to say he enjoyed Firmino’s play.
