Roberto Firmino came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool edged out Mexican side Monterrey 2-1 at the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019 on Wednesday and set up a final against Flamengo.

The game had started very well for Jurgen Klopp's team, with Naby Keita firing them into a 12th minute lead, to the delight of almost everyone in the crowd at the Khalifa International Stadum.

However, Monterrey quickly drew level through Argentine striker Rogelio Funes Mori two minutes later and the most recent winners of the CONCACAF Champions League matched the Reds for long spells.

But then, just as the game moved into the first of three added minutes, and with extra time looming, Firmino popped up to turn a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into the net from close range and take the Anfield side through.

Having taken time out from their seemingly relentless march towards the Premier League title to come to Qatar, Liverpool will be relieved at coming through this test, and they remain on course to win this competition for the first time in their history.

They play Brazil's Flamengo on Saturday.
