Liverpool star Emre Can scores a ‘Canenka’

Philippe Coutinho Emre Can Liverpool team news

Liverpool beat League 2 side Carlisle 2-1 on penalties to progress to the next round of the FA Cup.

Considering the Reds opponents play three-tiers beneath them getting overly excited at the penalty shootout stage may have appeared just a little over the top but Emre Can did not care.

The midfielder-come-defender dinked the ball over the Carlisle keeper and celebrated as if he had just won the World Cup.

The penalty caused a social media storm with Can’s penalty kick being called a ‘Canenka’ in reference to the Panenka penalty style.

There are a number of differences between the Canenka and the Panenka; the Canenka taker chips the ball dangerously close to the crossbar and obviously must obviously be called Can.

Can has been playing as a central midfielder for most of the season but reverted back into a defensive role in Brendan Rodgers back-three last night.

The Reds are currently 13th in the Premier League and take on Aston Villa next on Saturday 26 September at Anfield.
