Roberto Firmino had a torrid last couple of seasons at Anfield and he dropped down the pecking order under the management of Jurgen Klopp.
However, this season, the Brazilian international raised his game and has been one of our best players.
Despite top form, the Samba star was excluded from the World Cup squad and shockingly, Richarlison, who has not scored a single goal in the Premier League this term, was selected ahead of him.
Bobby was disappointed but remained graceful and opted not to criticize any selection experts or the manager.
Brazil have ample quality and depth in the attacking third and selection, like in any other sport, is not easy by any means. If you are into NFL then you must check the latest news, stats and nfl expert picks for the upcoming fixtures.
For Liverpool, Firmino’s exclusion from the World Cup squad could blessing in disguise.
After going all in the last campaign, the players have looked tired in the current season and that is why they have not been at their best.
To make matters worse, Klopp has had to deal with multiple injury concerns in the midfield and the attack.
As far as the offense is concerned, our first choice left winger, Luis Diaz and versatile forward, Diogo Jota are out until the next year. The duo need ample rest during time off and hopefully, they will return fresh.
Egypt did not qualify for the World Cup, so Salah is not going anywhere and now that Firmino is also staying. They can also train and be prepared when the Premier League season will return in December on Boxing Day.
The first team Liverpool forward expected to take part in the World Cup is summer signing, Darwin Nunez, who has started to settle in at Anfield.
Therefore, majority of our key attackers will not be tired of international duty and Liverpool can utilize that time to bounce back in the second half of the campaign.
