Manchester United target Firmino misses a sitter

Firm no...


Oh no!

Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino was one of the most highly touted players (by us anyway) heading into the Copa America and thus far, he has played pretty well.

However, during Brazil’s disastrous 1-0 loss to Colombia last night, he made one significant mistake. After a Colombia defender played a poor backpass to his goalkeeper, the ball ricocheted into the path of Firmino.

Unfortunately, the attacking midfielder ‘leaned back’.


There was a defender in his path, but United fans will be hoping for a lot better if the Hoffenheim man is captured by Louis van Gaal this summer.
