Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has kept a clean sheet in his last nine game as Lionel Messi is denied


No player has beaten Alisson in 846 minutes of football and fans have quite rightly praised the goalkeeper after the Copa America semi-final

Host nation Brazil were the first team to book their place in the final of the 2019 Copa America with a win over Argentina.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino secured the 2-0 triumph as Lionel Messi’s wait for a major international trophy goes on.

The match was played at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, where Brazil suffered a humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany at the 2014 World Cup.

But that ghost has been lifted five years on and this Selecao side are in a great position to win their first Copa America crown since 2007. They will face either Chile or Peru in the final on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker has been in outstanding form at the tournament – having yet to concede a goal in five matches at the finals so far.

The Liverpool man has actually kept clean sheets in his last NINE matches for club and country or 846 minutes.

The last time Alisson was beaten came in the 54th minute of a Premier League match for Liverpool at Newcastle on May 4.

Salomon Rondon scored the goal but was unable to get past Alisson when Venezuela faced Brazil in the group stage of this year’s Copa America.

And these Liverpool fans were not hesitant to suggest that Alisson is currently the best goalkeeper in the world. Below you can see some of the best tweets.
