Darwin Nunez silences doubters with FOUR second-half goals as Liverpool hit five in friendly win at RB Leipzig

    Darwin Nunez silenced any doubters of his with a stunning FOUR goals in the second half of Liverpool’s 5-0 win in a friendly at RB Leipzig.

    The Uruguayan forward, who joined the Reds in a deal that could rise to £85million, struck all four in the second half in what was ruthless display of forward play.

    His first was a penalty as his strike just crept into the net before adding another with a composed finish with his right foot after Liverpool won the ball in a dangerous area.

    Nunez got his third as he got on the end of Harvey Elliott’s low cross from the right on the stretch. He then added a fourth in the final seconds to send a message to all those who expressed their doubts after Liverpool’s first two pre-season matches.

    Mohamed Salah put the Merseysiders ahead in the first half with a calm finish.

    It’s only pre-season but this stunning second-half display will settle Nunez down as he showed exactly why Liverpool forked out all that money for him.

    He wasn’t named in Jurgen Klopp’s strong starting line-up, who went ahead early on when Salah passed the ball past Peter Gulacsi after playing a one-two with Roberto Firmino.

    The second half saw Nunez come on and he opened his goalscoring account six minutes later as his penalty, which was almost saved by Leipzig goalkeeper Janis Blaswich, crept in after Luis Diaz was fouled in the box.

    Moments later Nunez bagged his second and Liverpool’s third with a crisp finish into the corner of the net after being played through by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

    Nunez’s third came on his left peg as he just managed to get enough on Elliott’s cross before the ball trickled in-off the post.

    And the victory was rounded off in stoppage-time as Nunez’s curling effort from the left dropped in with Blaswich unable to handle the strike.
