(VIDEO) Watch: 30-year-old Liverpool star dazzles teammates and Jurgen Klopp with dribbling skills
Joel Matip stunned his colleagues and the coaching staff yesterday with an incredible solo goal during Liverpool practice.
The goal was so outstanding that it had to be posted on the official Liverpool FC Twitter account. First, Matip stole the ball from Roberto Firmino.
He then avoided a three-way challenge from Tyler Morton, Carvalho, and Firmino to oohs and ahs from the coaching staff. Moving closer to the goal, Matip dodged Joe Gomez before converting with his outside of the boot, giving Marcelo Pitaluga no chance.
“Mamma Mia!” shouted Pep Lijnders, while Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hide his smile either. “You can see the joy in his face,” joked the manager. “He’s really happy, I can tell you.”
Stop that, Joel 😮💨 pic.twitter.com/Q2WUWfJHnq
