Roberto Firmino isn’t your usual number 9….
We’ve known that ever since the quirky Brazilian arrived in 2015.
But tonight, he proved that racking up numbers simply isn’t on his agenda!
The forward had a chance to bury Sadio Mane’s chip into an open net, but instead, took a look at his team-mate and allowed the Senegalese’s effort to trickle in during the first-half!
It’s not the kind of behaviour you’d see in a playground, and we can think of many strikers who’d have happily gobbled up the free goal.
Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter!
Firmino letting that roll in instead of snaking Mane’s goal. That’s the kind of mate I need in life

Firmino is an international treasure.

You can literally see Mane being like "YO MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING" and that's when Firmino stops his kick I love it haha

Seeing Firmino not smash that in has made me love the guy even more

Firmino is a good man…
Allowing that goal to enter the post like that without tapping it in. 👌
