Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker kept his sixth clean sheet in as many games in the Copa America following Brazil’s 2-0 win over Argentina last night.
The 26-year-old continued his form from club level where he shut out Barcelona, Wolves and Tottenham in consecutive games at the end of the season.
Fans on Twitter are delighted with Alisson’s current form:

Over the last 15 months, Alisson Becker has played against Lionel Messi in three knockout tournaments.
He’s beaten him each time.
✅ Roma 2018
✅ Liverpool 2019
✅ Brazil 2019

Some of the players also praised the goalkeeper, including Virgil van Dijk who gave his approval using a well-known gif:

The £67m Liverpool paid Roma for Alisson has certainly been paid back in spades by the Brazilian and Reds fans will be hoping he can finish off an incredible season by winning the Copa America for Brazil.
The final against either Chile or Peru is on Sunday, but he should be back from holiday before the Community Shield final on August 4th when Liverpool will face Manchester City in the season’s curtain-raiser at Wembley.
