WHAT HAPPENED? The shot stopper is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, having played a crucial role for Liverpool in their recent Premier League and Champions League successes.

WHAT THEY SAID: “Yeah, he’s so good,” he said in an interview with Sky Sports. “When I went to the national team last time, when we played against when we played against Japan and South Korea, I remember when we were in training and I came one-v-one with him and it’s so difficult, he’s so big.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Brazil will be hoping that Alisson proves to be unbeatable when they kick off their World Cup campaign in Qatar later this month.
