Liverpool star Emre Can made his first start of the pre-season against Roma yesterday. The Reds ended up losing the game 2-1 but the 23-year-old game the fans something to cheer about.
The Germany international of Turkish origin managed to pull off a near perfect bottle flip mid-game.
For those who have never heard of the Flip Bottle challenge it involved flipping a bottle with some water inside – or any other liquid – and trying to get it to land upright.

The flip bottle challenge sparked a social media storm and Can has waded intentionally or unintentionally right into the thick of it.
