Now finally being started by Brazil boss, Tite, Reds forward Roberto Firmino is demonstrating just what he can do as he came up with a stunning through ball to assist Dani Alves against Peru.
Bobby’s assist finished off an impressive, one-touch team move where passes where exchanged after Alves initially began proceedings.
Coming from the right, he plays the ball inside, receives it back, and plays it to Firmino who threads the ball into the box for the onrushing Alves to fire into the net.

Tite should really have been playing Firmino from the off in the first place, but he’s already proving why he’s Brazil’s danger man for the competition.
