Liverpool 1-0 Flamengo (AET): Firmino kills the game again to hand Reds 1ST CWC
Roberto Firmino’s back-to-back goals in two consecutive games help Liverpool to lift their FIRST ever Club World Cup after beating Flamengo 1-0 in Qatar.
This player, unfortunately, has had enough major injuries to span two careers and having battled back from horrific knee ligament damage earlier this year, the last thing anyone wants to consider is another prolonged spell on the sidelines.
