Roberto Firmino confirms Liverpool become world champions

Liverpool became world champions for the 1st time as Roberto Firmino made amends for 2 earlier misses with the winner against Flamengo.

Roberto Firmino struck in overtime to say a primary Club World Cup title for European champions Liverpool as they beat Flamengo 1-0 in Doha on Saturday.

A tightly contested final should are settled by Firmino long before the 99th minute, but the usually reliable forward twice missed the target when well placed.

Liverpool also had a last-gasp penalty award struck off in normal time following a VAR review, giving Flamengo - victors over the Reds within the 1981 Intercontinental final - a lifeline.
