Liverpool ace Firmino: Porto defender Felipe can be proud

Liverpool ace Roberto Firmino was full of praise for Felipe after last night's 0-0 draw with Porto.

The Reds progressed to the Champions League quarterfinals 5-0 on aggregate.

On his battle with fellow Brazilian Felipe, Firmino stated: "Felipe is a great player with a lot of quality, it was an interesting duel.

"He has the quality to get into the Brazil team, but that's not up to me, it's with the coach (Tite)."

He added: "FC Porto were more prepared, we tried to impose our pace, our football, but we were not able to score."
