Roberto Firmino Gave To Liverpool And More…!



Roberto Firmino Gave To Liverpool And More…!


When Liverpool needed an equalizer at a most desperate hour against Aston Villa to get something out of their penultimate game of the season, there was just one man who turned up on the day—Roberto Firmino.

The story cannot be better written, it cannot be better said, from a Legend of the Kop, Roberto Firmino leaves a hero at Anfield.

Of course, their top 4 aspirations may be done with as the season comes to a close, Anfield and Firmino did get the closure they deserved. A final goal for one of the most loved players by the Kop scoring one last time in front of the Kop as an emotional Anfield bade goodbye.

The tight hug between goalkeeper Alisson Becker and the Liverpool number 9 was enough to write the picture of the day; a lot to be emotional for as Alisson Becker and Liverpool were both denied a clean sheet and a win that could have kept them in the running for the golden glove and the Champions League.

Credit to Unai Emery and what he has done for the Aston Villa side on his return to English football, keeping things tight at the back in a defense that became too well known for conceding ridiculous goals against its opponents. The Liverpool fans would be left wondering what could have been had Emery managed same side in the last game of last season against Manchester City. If only.

Wishes however though, do not win games, and despite the Reds pulling off the show today, with ridiculous efforts to level up at half-time through Luis Diaz’s master class, Trent shinning in his hybrid role for Liverpool, no shot on target was registered by the Reds.

Their one shot on target came however after the break through an ambitious strike from distance by Trent Alexander Arnold which was rendered tame by World Cup winning goal keeper, Emi Martinez whose antics in goal saved Villa from losing the game.

If Roberto Firmino was not awarded man of the match from the game, Martinez deserved a shout out for the award as he made saves upon saves, and countless interceptions as a sweeper goalie to keep Anfield under pressure while they stayed 1-0 down through an Aaron Ramsey’s first half finish.

Cody Gakpo had highlights in the game, but his one highlight was ruined by a vein draining VAR call to render his perfect finish an offside call.

Firmino’s last Anfield goal could have been the winner, and perhaps the perfect narrative for his Liverpool career had Gakpo’s goal stood. On the other hand, Villa will feel the same had Ollie Watkins scored a penalty that was awarded Villa shortly before Aaron Ramsey’s first half strike.

It ended a 1-1 draw, perhaps a deserved point, and a closure for a Liverpool hero who was a catalyst and a piece in Jurgen Klopp’s era. He was responsible for Liverpool’s Champions League triumph in 2018/19 even though many wouldn’t realize it, he was responsible for the Club World Cup victory over Flamengo in 2019 and of course, he played a part in the premier league win in the 2019/20 season, with his goal against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur back in the day. He is Roberto Firmino, the man Anfield looked up to when they needed saving.

He did it against Paris Saint-Germain, against Arsenal on multiple occasions, against Chelsea and on multiple times. Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool and more.
