Video: Luis Diaz scores stunning goal for Colombia on international duty

Liverpool's newest signing Luis Diaz scored an absolute beauty against Bolivia last night in their World Cup Qualifiers.

Despite only scoring two goals for the Reds since joining, the quality that Diaz possesses is clear for anyone to see.

During his time at FC Porto, he was known to score a screamer or two. He has come close a couple of times for Liverpool but he's yet to find the back of the net.

However, Colombia played Bolivia last night in a World Cup Qualifier and Diaz showed his class with a stunner in the 39th minute.

The 25-year-old, with a delicious first touch, picked the ball up on the left-wing. He then floated into the box and cut in on his trusty right foot. The Liverpool forward then curled it into the bottom corner to put Colombia 1-0 up.

It was a beautiful goal that started Colombia's 3-0 victory over Bolivia. Diaz basically got an assist too but it officially won't go down as one due to it getting a small deflection on the way through.

Diaz has a lot of pressure in Colombia as he's touted to be their next superstar to take them to heights they've never reached in international football.

Former Colombian footballer Faustino Asprilla recently claimed that Diaz is 'responsible' for what happens to Colombian football in the future, as cited by LFC Transfer Room.

"Luis Diaz has to be the number one player responsible for what happens from now on in the Colombian national team. All the responsibility falls on him now," said Asprilla.

"He has to realise that he is in one of the biggest teams in Europe and the Luis Diaz we see in England is the one we want to see in the national team. We must give him the tools to be able to develop as he does at Liverpool.

"I think Luis Diaz can become the most important player in the national team in the next ten years."
