Video: Naby Keita slick performance for his Country
Liverpool midfielder and Guinea international, Naby Keita (just like his Liverpool teammates Virgil van Dijk, Mo Salah and Gini Wijnadum) put up some great performances for his home country in the AFCON qualifiers.
Naby Keita’s performance for Guinea in a 2 – 0 win against Rwanda put smiles on the faces of Liverpool fans.
Although Naby Keita didn’t score a goal like his fellow teammates, the Reds £52 million midfielder put up a slick skill before winning a penalty for his home country.
The Guinea star upon receiving a pass while on the edge of the box, went ahead to perform a backheel skill that saw the ball go over his own head to beat two Rwanda defenders.
One of the defenders could not help it as he was forced to commit a foul inside the penalty area in order to stop Keita from running after the ball.
The sublime skill is worth watching,

Hopefully, we will see more of this action from Naby Keita when he returns to Anfield.
The midfielder should be available for the Reds next trip to Huddersfield this weekend.
Liverpool at the moment are seated at the third spot on the EPL table and are expected to pick up all three points during their match against Huddersfield.
