Liverpool shot-stopper Alisson Becker has nailed his own goalkeeper throw challenge, with a video that will have kids across Ireland launching footballs into open windows.

The Brazilian is, like the rest of us, in quarantine given the ongoing pandemic, and has taken part in the continuing trend of sport challenges online.

We're all trying to find ways to pass the time, and Alisson has decided to show his 6.7 million followers on Instagram a little taste of his accuracy from a throw.

It's not a bad house, to be fair. And yet the Cristiano Ronaldo-esque celebration may cause some copyright issues.

The Premier League remains suspended for the time being due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, and a number of Alisson's Liverpool teammates have also killed some time by recording skill challenges of their own.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been uploading some golf videos, while Trent Alexander-Arnold has opted for the cringey walk-off, mic drop vibe after his accuracy clip.

Alisson's video may be viral, but it's not quite at the level of young Dublin goalkeeper Nathan Fanagan, filmed by his Mum Sarah-Jayne Tobin in their back garden practicing skills recently.

Nathan's video has been viewed over 10 million times at this stage, with the likes of David de Gea, Juan Mata, Ben Foster and Peter Schmeichel all responding to the short clip.

Liverpool sat an incredible 25 points clear of nearest rivals City (with a game more played) when the Premier League season was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The suspension of football in England due to COVID-19 was extended until April 30 but Premier League bosses have stated they are willing to extend the season indefinitely, to finish it out.

27-year-old Alisson joined the Merseysiders from Serie A outfit Roma in July 2018, helping them win the Champions League last season.

The transfer fee of £66.8million immediately saw him overtake Ederson and Gianluigi Buffon as the most expensive goalkeeper of all time.
