DBasia.news – Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino became a Brazilian hero against Venezuela in the third match of the CONMEBOL World Cup 2022 qualifier, at the Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, Saturday (14/11). The Liverpool striker scored the only goal for the Brazilian national team.
Roberto Firmino has played a different role after Neymar was sidelined with injury. Brazil coach, Tite, put Firmino on the right wing position.
However, this did not reduce Brazil's sharpness. Brazil pressed Venezuela's defense from the start of the match.
In fact, when the game had only been running for seven minutes, Brazil scored a goal through Richarlison using Firmino's bait. However, the goal was disallowed because it was offside first.
Brazil finally took the lead in the 67th minute. Roberto Firmino, who received Everton Riberio's pass, completed his job well.
With that victory, Brazil leads the standings. The Samba team always wins in three matches. Next, Brazil will visit Uruguay's headquarters, Wednesday (18/11).
Firmino's sharpness is starting to return to be good news for Liverpool. Because, from 12 matches with The Reds, the former Tombense has only scored one goal. The role of Firmino began to be shifted by Diogo Jota.
Roberto Firmino can also be a mainstay for Liverpool who are facing a difficult situation regarding Mohamed Salah. The player from Egypt is exposed to the corona virus.
