It's far from the real thing but plenty of Brazilian flair was on show as the Reds' summer signing took part in training.

The Brazilian is not only now expected to deliver handsomely because of his £29 million (fee as reported by the BBC among others) valuation but also the fact he will be working alongside another big-money signing in Christian Benteke - and fellow countryman and playmaker Philippe Coutinho.
Fear not, though, as Liverpool's new signing showed his first flash of magic at Melwood with a delicious rabona pass (see above).
It's far from a competitive environment and far from a rabona goal - we can't even see if the pass made it to the target before the video cuts off. But it's a start and certainly a sign of what could be to come from Firmino. Firmino's former scout at Hoffenheim, meanwhile, is confident he can succeed with Liverpool, describing the Brazilian as a 'special player,' according to Sky Sports.
Indeed, it's only pre-season and the tricks are already coming out from the 23-year-old; what could he be willing to attempt when fully fit and on top form?
