Brazil Under-20s beat England’s youngsters 2-1 a few days back, with Allan Rodrigues de Souza the only Liverpool player on the field!
He played at the base of midfield, a much deeper role than he’s accustomed to, and thankfully some highlights have surfaced for us to check out his performance.
Allan’s passing is crisp, but we can see he’s very left-footed and although he gets stuck in, perhaps lacks physical strength.
He’s yet to feature for Hertha Berlin on loan this term, but we hope he eventually gets himself in the side so we can see some more of him.
There’s no natural deeplying playmaker in our squad, and it’d be fantastic if Allan could eventually develop and fulfil that role.
