Very few players debut as spectacularly as Xherdan Shaqiri did, on Saturday, against Manchester United. Formerly a Stoke City player, Shaqiri made his debut for Liverpool FC in the International Champions Cup against Jose Mourinho’s side. Shaqiri scored a stupendous bicycle-kick, as the fifth goal in the night saw Manchester United sink to a 4-1 defeat.
The match ended in a one-sided affair as the Red Devils faced a rout against a resurgent Jurgen Klopp’s side. It was Sadio Mane, who converted a penalty shot, which gave Liverpool an early lead in the match. However, their happiness was short-lived as Andreas Periera scored an equalising-goal with a beautiful free-kick.
