Joel Matip’s wife posts two-word reaction to Liverpool defender’s close-range equaliser v Aston Villa

Posted by

Larissa Matip expressed some excitement online at her husband firing in a huge equaliser for Liverpool during their Villa Park visit.

The Reds started poorly in the West Midlands, conceding early despite a suspected offside position having been taken by Ollie Watkins in the buildup to the opener, though quickly recovered in the space of three minutes to bring the score level.

The Cameroonian international poked home his effort from close range after the ball ricochetted favourably into the path of the centre-half after striking Emiliano Martinez’s chest.
