Robertson shone once again as Liverpool beat Napoli.
David Thompson has claimed on Twitter that Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is good enough to play for Barcelona, after the defender shone against Napoli on Tuesday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s men earned a 1-0 win over Carlo Ancelotti’s side at Anfield to qualify for the last 16 of the competition, finishing in second behind Paris Saint-Germain and level on points with Napoli.
The win was enough to see them qualify through goals scored, but Klopp’s men really should have found the back of the net more than just once. Sadio Mane was guilty of missing chance after chance, with Mo Salah scoring the crucial goal.
Former Liverpool midfielder Thompson picked a somewhat understated Reds player to applaud, making the claim that Scotland captain Robertson would be good enough to play for Barcelona.
Andy Robertson could play for Barca and not look out of place ❤️— David Thompson (@77thomo) December 11, 2018
The 24-year-old was up and down on the left flank, helping the Reds create chances in the final third as well as proving defensively solid up against the likes of Lorenzo Insigne, Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens.
Liverpool’s qualification sees all four English sides make it into the last 16, after Tottenham drew with Barcelona at the Nou Camp to qualify ahead of Inter Milan – who failed to beat PSV Eindhoven at home.
Manchester City and Manchester United have both qualified for the knockout rounds ahead of their fixtures on Wednesday night against Hoffenheim and Valencia respectively.
