Watch: Van Dijk scores brilliant free-kick from ridiculous angle in training
Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is already the best defender in the world, and he can now add set-piece specialist to his CV.
He scored a few free-kicks when he was playing for Celtic, but he rarely gets to take them at Anfield as Trent Alexander-Arnold, James Milner, Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri are ahead of him in the queue.
The centre-back reminded us off his dead ball credentials by lining up a free-kick from behind one of the goals in a training session.
Despite a lack of faith from his team-mates, Van Dijk is able to whip the ball into the back of the net with ease.
Is there anything he can’t do?
