The comments section clearly reflected the significance of this victory for Marcelo Bielsa’s team. This win has propelled the squad into the second position in the standings. Just behind the leaders and reigning world champions, Argentina. Meanwhile, Brazil and Venezuela, the latter of which did not secure a qualification for Qatar, currently occupy the fourth spot after playing four matches.

Liverpool is undoubtedly hopeful that Nunez will return to Merseyside. Thus, drawing inspiration from his recent success to propel Jurgen Klopp’s team up the Premier League standings.
