(Video) Anfield bursts into applause as Darwin Nunez is subbed off in final pre-World Cup appearance

Posted by

Darwin Nunez appears to be going from strength to strength. He couldn’t be leaving Liverpool for the World Cup in much better form and his loyal supporters made sure to give him a good send-off.

After scoring twice and helping the Reds defeat Southampton, Pep Lijnders substituted the forward off the pitch and that invited a brilliant reception for the former Benfica man.

All four sides of the stadium rose to their feet and applauded the Uruguayan and he responded by clapping back in appreciation and it’s clear that there’s a great mutual love in place.

Now our No.27 is off to Qatar and we will continue to support him from afar, hoping that he has a successful tournament and that he can come back and continue this brilliant run of form straight away.
