Ibrahima Konate’s subsequent soccer match might be as a Liverpool participant, after France U21 had been knocked out of the Euros on Monday.
The Dutch beat them 2-1, however Konate’s particular person efficiency was spectacular – and he truly regarded a stage above the opposite gamers on the sphere – largely due to his immense physicality.
We additionally very a lot loved this go, seen within the video beneath, which exhibits the 22-year-old’s imaginative and prescient.
Konate performs a ahead go, first-time proper down the channel, with Ikone can run on to.
It’s not a lump ahead, however a superbly executed through-pass. We already learn about Virgil van Dijk’s distribution from the left-sided centre-back position, so having one other defender able to beginning assaults from deep might be massively helpful, as that’s not likely within the armoury of Nat Phillips or Rhys Williams.
