Diogo Jota leaves Liverpool fans swooning after stunning solo goal for Portugal

Diogo Jota has left Liverpool fans swooning after a stunning solo goal for Portugal.

The 23-year-old departed Wolves in the summer to sign for the Premier League champions in a deal worth up to £45m.

He has arrived to bolster competition up front and has already struck after a goal against Arsenal.

With Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah off for the Afcon next year, Jota could prove crucial at a busy time of the season.

But as for now, he is already proving a massive hit – for club and country.

Portugal made light work of Sweden in the Nations League, even without Cristiano Ronaldo who has been diagnosed with coronavirus.

In his absence, Jota stepped up after scoring a brace against the Scandanavians, while Manchester City star Bernardo Silva also netted – which the Liverpool attacker set-up.

But it is the ex-Atletico Madrid ace's second strike that has got Liverpool fans talking after a fine solo effort.

After having the ball fed to him out wide, he cut inside the Swedish defence with remarkable ease before firing past Robin Olsen.

And fans are loving the impact he had for his country, with one blown away by the Liverpool scouts as well.

They said: "Whoever is Liverpools scouts needs a huge raise."

Whereas another remarked, possibly referring to the fact that Sweden's keeper Olsen has just signed for Liverpool's rivals Everton: "Save that for Saturday…"

"Spectacular perfomance from Jota! That is real powercube," this fan said.

One fan simply said: "World class goal."

While another wrote: "Jota ok I understand he’s just cover for that Liverpool front 3 but he’s still class has been since he came to Wolves and is improving all the time.

"He’s gunna defo become world class one day."

A sixth posted: "Jota's already a great player from his seasons at Wolves. Based on Klopp's development on our other players, he'll turn Jota into a superstar. Very excited!"

And another fan said: "Liverpool got a gem in their ranks."
