Former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke was brought on against his old club at the weekend, with Roy Hodgson hoping the Belgian international could make an impact.
Luckily for the Reds, he was missing his shooting boots on the day, but that didn’t stop ‘Big Ben’ from looking like a threat.
One instance in particular stands out – and that’s just before the 80th minute when the forward lined up a scissor kick.
He caught it well, but it was just wide, and some Liverpool fans clenched when Benteke found himself in that position – as we know just how lethal he can be!
Take a watch of the video below (via Canal+):
