Roberto Firmino has downplayed the severity of his eye injury and insists his recovery ‘went well’ following Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening.
The Brazilian was poked in the eye by Jan Vertonghen during Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday and was a doubt for the Champions League clash at Anfield.
But Firmino was fit enough to make the bench and he came on as a second-half substitute to score Liverpool’s winning goal against PSG in injury time.
The 26-year-old also made light of his eye injury during his celebration.
‘I felt well when I came on to the pitch,’ said Firmino. Firmino received a finger in the eye from Jan Vertonghen at Wembley (Getty Images)

‘It has been three days after the incident and the recovery went well.
