Watching Virgil van Dijk find a team-mate 60-yards away is unbelievably satisfying.
The Dutchman has a nonchalant style when kicking long, where he strikes across the ball and fades it to an onrushing attacker – like Tiger Woods finding the green with an iron.
This ball to Mo Salah in the second-half v Barcelona tonight was stunning. It travelled almost the length of the field and landed exactly where the Egyptian wanted it to.
From this initial pass, Liverpool fashioned a chance which James Milner should have scored – but side-footed straight into the path of Barca’s keeper.
We lost last night and it’s going to take a monumental effort to turn it around. But strange things have happened, right?
FT: Barca 3-0 Liverpool
Lionel Who? For me, it was all about *that* ball from VVD 👌😍👏
