Pepe Reina hails Emre Can's wonder goal in Liverpool's win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night
Pepe Reina took to Twitter to hail Emre Can’s wonder goal in Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night.
Liverpool were looking to make a swift return to winning ways following a surprise 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in their last Premier League outing.
Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped pointed at the weekend to give Liverpool the chance to put some daylight between themselves and their title rivals.
And Liverpool made the breakthrough in the second minute of added time at the end of the first half when Lucas Leiva picked out Can on the move in Watford’s penalty area.
The Germany international managed to swivel and steer an overhead kick past Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to open the scoring in dramatic fashion in the English capital.
Former Liverpool goalkeeper Reina was a big fan of Can’s opening goal after the Spain international took to social media to hail the German midfielder’s stunning effort.
Reina wrote: “What a goal that is…😱😍!! #WatLiv”
