Liverpool fans have reacted with disbelief after former striker Iago Aspas netted a wondergoal on his debut for Spain against England at Wembley on Tuesday night.
The Celta Vigo man has been in incredible form in his homeland of late and was named as the La Liga Player of the Month for October ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Aspas’ form earned him a maiden call-up to the Spain national squad, with the former Red featuring for a much-changed La Roja side from the bench on Tuesday.
With England 2-0 up, the Celta man scored a cracking goal to set up a nail-biting finish, with Isco netting a last-gasp equaliser for the visitors.
Aspas was bought by Brendan Rodgers during his time at Anfield but failed to score in 14 Premier League games before leaving Liverpool as a failure.
One of the enduring images of the Spaniard was a corner he took for the Merseyside club against Chelsea, where he passed the ball straight to opposition player Willian.
Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter after Aspas’ heroics, with a selection of the best tweets below.
Always thought Iago Aspas was a good little player that was (NOT SURPRISINGLY) ruined by a certain Brendan Rodgers

Been defending him for ages but Aspas is actually a very good player. Pretty ridiculous how he’s solely judged on that corner.

That Aspas goal makes me wonder if we shouldn’t have held on to him, and just let someone else take the corners. #LFC

Aspas really has turned a corner…

Fair play to Iago Aspas, quality before and after his spell at LFC, not given a fair chance at Anfield, but he has moved on and done well.
