‘Enormous quality’: Nation’s media blown away by Liverpool star’s substitute appearance last night



A number of Liverpool players have flown out to represent their countries.


The international break is a really annoying period for fans of domestic football, but this gives players an opportunity to show their class in their national team’s colours.

The Euros are coming up this summer, as is the Copa America, and players who will participate in those tournaments will be dreaming of winning it.


Liverpool have a decent-sized South American contingent in their squad, and a number of their players will battle it out to win the Copa America this summer.


Alexis Mac Allister’s Argentina may just be the favourites.


Liverpool player impresses on international duty

Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world, and they have plenty of top-quality international players in their squad.


Many of them have been called up by their respective national teams for this international break, and Liverpool fans are hoping everyone stays away from injuries.


When Argentina took on El Salvador in a friendly on Friday night, Lionel Scaloni decided against using Alexis Mac Allister from the start, which was a surprise.


However, the Liverpool man was brought on for the final 17 minutes of the game, and his little cameo seems to have impressed Argentine media outlet TyC Sports.


In their player ratings after the 3-0 win, Mac Allister was handed 6/10 for his 17-minute cameo, but he was given a glowing review.


“A handful of minutes was enough to enjoy his enormous quality,” the outlet wrote.


Alexis Mac Allister’s impressive stats for Argentina vs El Salvador

Liverpool fans would’ve loved the fact that Alexis Mac Allister did not start against El Salvador. He deserved a break.


The midfielder, hailed as ‘incredible’ by Wataru Endo, was brought on in the 73rd minute of the game on Friday night, when Argentina were already 3-0 up. The game was done at that stage.


However, Mac Allister’s stats show why TyC Sports were so impressed with his performance.


In just 17 minutes on the pitch, the Argentine had 32 touches of the ball and completed 24 of his 26 attempted passes, maintaining a brilliant 92 per cent passing accuracy. Mac Allister also registered two key passes, made a tackle and won three of his five duels. (SofaScore)


Those are solid numbers for someone who was only on the pitch for 17 minutes.
