Jurgen Klopp confident in his team after thunder-ball goals …

 

Jurgen Klopp saluted lethal finishes from Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge as Liverpool kicked off their Champions League campaign with a dramatic 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

Klopp’s side raced into a two-goal lead against the star-studded French champions thanks to Sturridge’s clinical header and a James Milner penalty.

Thomas Meunier got one back for PSG before the break and Kylian Mbappe looked to have snatched an undeserved Group C draw for the visitors with his 83rd-minute equaliser.

But Brazil forward Firmino came off the bench to steal the points in stoppage time with a predatory finish.

“It was really important we started like we did. We were so strong and good with the ball,” a relieved Klopp said.

“We changed the system because we expected a change from them. We needed all of our focus and we covered a lot of yards and closed all of the gaps.

“We scored wonderful goals, they were thunderballs.”
