Belgium smashed Andorra 6-0 on Friday night and Liverpool forward Divock Origi, currently back on loan at Lille, was at the heart of the action—scoring one and assisting another.
Origi led the line for Belgium, chosen ahead of Romelu Lukaku (who replaced him after 66 minutes).
The 19-year-old is a player Brendan Rodgers described last week as being somebody they expect to be “world class”. “We took a player in Divock Origi who we believe will be world-class and we’ll get him next summer,” said the boss.
“He is a top player. He has everything – the speed, the profile and he can play now but our deal was that we couldn’t bring him in now.
“That was unfortunate because he can run in behind, he can keep the ball, he can press and he can run.”
Great win last night! Always an honour to play and score for my country #EURO2016 #tousensemble pic.twitter.com/9YoBA5vGuU
