Not known for his goalscoring exploits, Scotland captain Andy Robertson was at the heart of a brilliant Liverpool goal last night.
The Reds edged out Red Bull Salzburg 4-3 in a thrilling match at Anfield. After going 3-0 up, Jurgen Klopp’s men took their foot off the gas and allowed the Austrians back into the game.
With just over 20 minutes to spare though, Mohamed Salah scored a vital fourth goal for Liverpool. It puts them second in their Champions League group.
Robertson opened his goalscoring for the 2019/20 season during the match, netting their second goal in some style.
As shown by this BT Sport clip, the strike just screams quality from all areas of the park.
Alexa, show me the perfect example of Liverpool's football under Jurgen Klopp…

After careful passing around the back, Scotland’s captain sets off on one of his trademark attacking runs. From midfield to attack and out to the flanks, Liverpool get the ball out to Trent Alexander-Arnold with some brilliant passing.
He delivers a brilliant first-time ball which Robertson finished in some style, sealing a fantastic team goal.
When he plays like that, Robertson is somewhat unplayable. If Scotland can figure out how to get this version of Robertson on the international stage, fans should be very excited.
