Liverpool fans are eagerly anticipating the start of the new season, and one player they are particularly excited about is Luis Diaz. During their final pre-season friendly against Darmstadt, Diaz showcased his skills with a stunning goal that left fans in awe.
From a corner taken by Dominik Szoboszlai, Diaz displayed incredible ingenuity by back-heeling the ball off the crossbar from a difficult angle. It was a moment of magic that had Liverpool fans buzzing with anticipation for what Diaz will bring to the team this season.
Fans took to social media to express their excitement, with one fan stating, “That is magic from Luis Diaz. He is going to have a massive impact on our season.” Another fan added, “Luis Diaz is going to have a huge season, as long as he stays fit. Some may have forgotten just how brilliant he is because of last season’s layoff.”
The goal was also shared on Twitter, with CBS Sports Golazo tweeting, “LUIS DIAZ. STOP THAT. What a finish from the Colombian off the corner from Dominik Szoboszlai.” The video clip attached to the tweet further highlighted Diaz’s exceptional goal.
In addition to Diaz’s goal, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota also found the back of the net, giving Liverpool a 2-0 lead within the first eight minutes. Although Mathias Honsak pulled one back for Darmstadt, Diaz’s moment of brilliance secured the victory for Liverpool.
With their pre-season preparations complete, Liverpool now look ahead to their first match of the 2023/24 campaign against Chelsea on Sunday. The performance of Luis Diaz has undoubtedly raised expectations among fans, who believe he is capable of delivering a season reminiscent of Luis Suarez’s impact.
When it comes to breathtaking goals, Carlos Luis Diaz of the Argentinean side Banfield has just pulled off an audacious move that has Liverpool FC fans shaking their heads in amazement.
On Wednesday night, Diaz was in action in the Copa Sudamericana quarterfinals between his side and Athletico Paranaense. In the 45th minute of the match, Diaz received the ball outside the edge of the penalty area and delivered an outrageous back heel flick which found it’s way into the back of the net. The ball had started its trajectory outside the post, before curving delicately inside the far corner of the goal – leaving the goalkeeper no chance at all.
The goal sparked an instant reaction on social media as Liverpool FC fans began to express their admiration for the incredible strike. It wasn’t long before comparisons were being made between Diaz and Liverpool’s own Roberto Firmino, who’s own audacious back heel against Everton in the Merseyside derby back in 2019 has become a highlight of his time at Anfield.
Meanwhile, Diaz’s goal in the Copa Sudamericana was all the more impressive due to the level of difficulty and spectacular nature of the skill performed. Liverpool FC fans that have watched events unfold since would all likely agree that the same thought has been on their mind in recent days- “Firmino who?”.
Although it might be a while before Liverpool FC fans get to see Diaz in action at Anfield, they’ll surely be keeping an eye on his progress in future and hoping he can recreate some of his spectacular moments of skill at his side Banfield.
