June 23, 2014, was a memorable day for Divok Origi. In the group stage of the World Cup in Brazil, belgium and Russia, the 19-year-old scored the only goal of the match in the 87th minute, helping Belgium to beat Russia and lock in the top of the group in advance, and he himself became the youngest World Cup goal scorer in the Belgian national team.
Since this match, Origi's football career has been shrouded in mystery.
After the World Cup, the famous Belgian rising star was paid by Liverpool for a transfer fee of 10 million pounds, and after Lille continued to play for a season, Origi came to the Premier League, began his magical journey at Anfield, and also achieved the legend of world football comparable to "Qi Xuanzong".
Just arrived at Liverpool, Origi became the "hope of the whole village" - the main centre-forward Suarez has moved to Barca for the Champions League dream, Sterling can not resist the temptation of money to go to Manchester City, Sturridge's dancing skills are far more reliable than shooting. The inadequacy of the first arrival in the Premier League, coupled with the confusion in Rogers' tactical system, Origi was lost.
Rodgers then stepped down due to poor performance, Klopp took office, origi overcame the gradual feeling between himself and Ben Turk after overcoming the adaptation period, but the good times did not last long - in the Merseyside derby on 21 April 2016, Origi had just helped Liverpool take the lead with a header, and then was seriously injured by Everton defender Morrie's malicious foul, which was more than half a year.
Origi's ascent came to an abrupt end, and after recovering from injury, he was loaned to Wolfsburg. Since then, with Klopp's decision to reuse Firmino, who has a greater technical and tactical role, as a "pseudo-center", Mane and Salah have arrived one after another, and Liverpool's "Red Arrow Three" has officially merged, and After Origi's return, he has no chance to come forward.
The protracted combination of "Red Arrows" made the fans completely forget the "hope of the whole village", but Klopp did not forget him, otherwise he would not have firmly said no in the face of Wolfsburg's buyout request.
Origi has been waiting on the bench for his chance until December 3, 2018 – merseyside derby. Liverpool were unable to attack for a long time, and Origi was ordered in the 84th minute. Although it was difficult for Origi to have a chance to break the deadlock under the focus of Everton's defense, a magical accident rewrote Origi's fate.
In the 96th minute, Van Dijk's desperate shot from outside the penalty area was deflected, and everyone silently accepted the 0-0 score. But opportunities are always left to those who are prepared, and Pickford's mistakes have made Origi a killer, and the striker, who was once pinned high hopes by Liverpool fans, has finally lifted the magic halo of his career.
With this "revenge" streak, Origi's football career at Liverpool was transformed, and he became Klopp's first substitute striker. In the ensuing Champions League semi-final second leg at Anfield, Origi became a hero worshipped by tens of thousands of Reds fans.
The first leg was a 3-0 defeat at Camp Nou, and the Reds needed a four-goal win to reverse. Origi, who started salah, scored just seven minutes into the opening and blew the horn of the Reds' counterattack. After Wijnaldum scored twice to make the aggregate 3-3, it was Origi who scored Arnold's corner kick into the annals of the Champions League and helped the Reds complete a stunning comeback.
In front of an Anfield's hometown father, Origi performs the creep legend in front of Messi and Suarez, and this earth-shattering reversal is initiated by him and ended by him! Origi has since become a Red Army general and a Liverpool koi.
In the champions league final, Klopp still gave Origi the opportunity to play as a substitute, and he once again fulfilled his mission, scoring a goal that sealed the victory and helping the Reds return to the top of Europe in 14 years.
Although Origi still can't regain the main position from the hands of the "Red Arrow Three", after that, Klopp's tactics have a golden rule of "if you can't beat Origi" - he is still a Liverpool koi, and even became a "feng shui striker" in Zhan Jun's mouth. His name is not seen on the top scorer list, but only key goals and dead ends, and Liverpool even gave the official argument that "football has no meaning without Origi".
This is the beloved Origi. This season, with Jota's steady play, Origi gradually lost the opportunity to play, but the attributes of the koi remained unchanged. With the World Cup just around the corner, Origi had to find another way out in order to pursue his dream of the World Cup. Serie A giants AC Milan are very fond of him, and if all goes as usual, the "Feng Shui Striker" will wear a red and black stripe next season to play Serie A.
I sincerely hope that Origi can join AC Milan without a visa at the end of this season, using his excellent physical condition and shooting skills to help Milan achieve another great success in Serie A and the Champions League.
