It would be much more fun if we were writing this after a Premier League game, but this isn’t a bad start for Xherdan Shaqiri…
Liverpool’s new Swiss attacker scored an outrageous bicycle kick to confirm a 4-1 victory over our biggest rivals Manchester United this evening.
The Swiss only joined the group a few days ago, and to be fair, without much fanfare, but he’s incredibly talented and this friendly goal will earn him a cult status before his competitive debut.
Friendly results mean zero, of course, but it’s still nice to be on the right side of a world-class goal and not have to play down its significance…
Shaqiri for player of the year… Bring it on!
