Only six minutes into the Group A match on Friday with Ecuador, the Netherlands, under the charge of Virgil van Dijk, the Liverpool center-back, took the lead.
Liverpool is one of the clubs that is keeping a close check on PSV Eindhoven men in Qatar very closely. According to reports, the Reds are planning on holding talks with its representation after his engagement in the competition concluded along with other European clubs, such as Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Real Madrid.
It isn’t predictable result that he is going to give up on the outfit of Eredivise in January, but PSV is prepared to listen to offers of over €50m.
Left-foot goals, on the other hand, like the one he made at Khalifa International Stadium appear to be very rare for Gakpo. Rather a glance at this record on Transfermarks induces, he only scored 15 out of 82 foals with the left foot which works out more than 18% of the time.
It might not seem impressive. However, Gapko has made a significant improvement in this area. After he scored his first 32 goals using his weaker foot, she has been able to net 14 out of the last 50 off his left. It improves the score to 28% which brings him in line with Diogo Jota of Liverpool, taken as something of a weak-foot specialist.
A few of the goals by Gapko have been tap-ins, but there are some finished that she has mastered. He has a habit of grabbing them out by side-footing in it closer to the post with his left.
Gapko might not be the most effective but experts wonder if his skill-set can land itself in right and central-side roles in the frontline of Liverpool, too just like Jota.
