'One of the world's best soon' - Newcastle United fans stunned by Livramento display in 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund
Newcastle United fans were in awe of Tino Livramento’s performance despite their 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night (7 November).
The Magpies’ hopes of reaching the knock-out stages took a huge blow after goals from Niclas Fullkrug and Julian Brandt sunk them at the Signal Iduna Park.
Back-to-back defeats to the German giants leave Eddie Howe’s side at the foot of Group F on four points, and AC Milan’s 2-1 win over PSG did them no favours.
Livramento was a standout for the side despite the defeat and per SofaScore, he registered 86 per cent pass accuracy, one key pass and three tackles – all while not being dribbled past once.
The 20-year-old was rewarded with just his third start in all competitions this season, but his “immense” performance left Newcastle fans very impressed.
This fan hailed Livramento’s display as the best on the field for Newcastle and tipped him as a regular starter soon.
This fan simply praised the former Chelsea man’s performance as “immense”.
One fan dubbed his performances as “world-class” and claimed he will soon be one of the sport’s best.
This fan hasn’t seen a player quite like Livramento and is yet to see him get beaten one-v-one.
This supporter was left so impressed that he could see the youngster becoming a future captain for Newcastle.
This fan was very eager to see Livramento get more game time after his “outstanding” performances having racked up just 359 minutes this season.
One supporter claimed that Livramento has been the best player in all the games he’s featured in for the Magpies.
This supporter feels it won’t be too long before Gareth Southgate eyes him up for a senior England call-up.
