Robin van Persie praises Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's "beautiful" goal

Robin van Persie describes Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's second goal against Genk on Wednesday as a "beautiful" strike.

Robin van Persie has described Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's second goal against Genk as a "beautiful" strike.

The England midfielder had opened the scoring for the Reds on three minutes, but it was his second that caught the eye as he curled Roberto Firmino's pass off the outside of his right boot into the top left of the goal from the edge of the area.

Van Persie, who played with Chamberlain at Arsenal and now works for BT Sport as a pundit, said: "Most strikers don't imagine it, eight out of 10 don't even think about it, two who actually think about it, one of the two can't even do it. The way he executed that goal is so beautiful.

"I'm so happy for him, I used to play with him at Arsenal, I saw that ability. He has potential to be a top player, if he can do those type of goals he can become that type of player. That goal is like one you will score once in your life."

Chamberlain's brace and further goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane helped Liverpool run out 4-1 winners, a result that puts them one point behind Napoli after three games in Group E.
