Liverpool win the World Club Cup Two years ago, today, with Bobby Firmino’s late goal, he won the championship trophy for the first time.
Jurgen Klopp’s men beat Monterrey in the semi-final, and our No. 9 was on the scoresheet again with Naby Keita’s goal to beat Mexico 2-1.
The final pitting the Reds against Flamengo came in a December that featured nine games in 25 hectic days.
The fans committed to Qatar had to wait a long time for the deadlock to be broken, not until the first extra time for a goal to be scored.
Jordan Henderson played Sadio Mane in the middle, he held the ball and stretched for the Brazilian forward, who saved the keeper in the 99th minute.
As soon as the ball reached the net, our striker took his shirt off and his teammates celebrated wildly.
We succeeded and won the trophy for the first time on that historic day.
