Just like Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum during Netherland’s game against Germany game, Naby Keita also gave Liverpool fans something to cheer about with his performance for Guinea during the 2-0 victory against Rwanda in an Africa Cup of Nations match.

Check out the sublime move pulled off below:
