UCL: We Fear No Foe, Liverpool’s Firmino Boasts
Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino has boasted that his side will welcome any opponent in the quarterfinal of the UEFA Champions League.
After a 5-0 aggregate win over FC Porto in the round of 16, Liverpool awaits the March 16 draw.
Brimming with confidence, Firminho said he is set for any opponent, even if its against a fellow Premier League club in the quarterfinals.
"Yes, we'd like a draw against an English club. Why not?" said Brazil international Firmino, who has 22 goals this season and is part of a devastating front three at Anfield alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
"We have shown in the past few seasons we can beat all the English clubs. Our record is good against them.
"We feel we have played well against the top English clubs and shown we can beat them but we are not afraid of anyone in the draw."
Manchester City is the other English team that has qualified for the quarterfinals, with Manchester United and Chelsea set to play next week. Tottenham has crashed out.
