(VIDEO) Watch : Highlights of Darwin Nunez vs AC Milan as the Uruguay star bags a brace
Darwin Nunez’s World Cup struggles are nothing to worry Liverpool fans, as the Uruguayan was in top form while wearing his club outfit.
In a friendly game against AC Milan, Nunez scored twice in just over 30 minutes of play, demonstrating that despite what occurred in Qatar, he still has his shooting touch.
Before club football was suspended, the striker was starting to resemble the player Liverpool spent up to £84 million on. He finished a respectable run of games with a hat trick against Southampton.
Nunez started all three of Uruguay’s group games in Doha, where they failed to advance to the Round of 16, although he might as well not have been there.
But his World Cup worries were blown away with two goals in six minutes against Serie A champions Milan during a 4-1 win.
The first was a slick finish after an assist from youngster Bobby Clark, before he tapped in a cross by Ben Doak.
Mohamed Salah scored the game’s opener with Thiago scoring the Reds’ other goal with a thunderbolt strike.
The Reds will return to Merseyside before heading to Manchester City for a League Cup clash on December 22.
