Liverpool’s Diogo Jota is quickly gaining a reputation for being absolutely brilliant in the air, despite not being the greatest.

The Portugal international proved that again tonight as he helped his country beat Turkey 3-1.

Jota, a £45m signing from Liverpool in 2020 [Telegraph]made it 2-0 in the first half.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s excellent curl went wide before Otavio used a teasing cross for the unmarked Jota.

And the Liverpool attacker headed down the near post and headed into the net.

For someone who is just 1.70m tall, Jota has developed a lot of power and precision with a header.

Here’s what Don Goodman was saying along the way Sky Sports Comment: “I can’t tell you what a good header that is. He gave the goalkeeper the eyes. The power and accuracy he’s developed – and he’s not the greatest – but my word he’s scored some stunning headers.”

Courtesy of the Liverpool player and his team-mates, the Portuguese are one step closer to their path to the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

Fernando Santos’ team will face Macedonia in the play-off final and no doubt the former Wolverhampton Wanderers star will be there too.

Remember that in January Jota sealed his status as a strong player for Liverpool when he appeared at the Africa Cup of Nations in the absence of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and scored some huge goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Goals like his header tonight are a reminder that he can score from scratch and is determined to do the same next week.
