Thiago Alcantara netted a quite filthy goal for Liverpool against Porto in the Champions League this evening.
With Liverpool already guaranteed to progress as group winners as they headed into tonight’s game, you could’ve forgiven Jurgen Klopp for fielding a more heavily rotated side than he did.
Even with the changes made to the start XI, Liverpool’s team was a strong one, with Thiago Alcantara, a player with real pedigree in the Champions League, lining up in midfield.
Thiago justified his inclusion in the second-half of the contest by striking a GORGEOUS volley into the bottom corner of the goal. It was always heading in from the moment it left his boot.
THAT IS WORLD CLASS! ✨
Just ridiculous from Thiago! 😱🔥
Wait for the angle from behind… 🤤 pic.twitter.com/21X1XkxW1W

The Spaniard’s doesn’t get on the scoresheet frequently, but when he does, they’re usually goals of real quality. This may well be among the finest he’s ever scored, just unfortunately also one of the most meaningless in the grand scheme of things…
