In the opinion of Charlie Adam, if it were Harry Kane or Erling Haaland, they could have scored a hat-trick from the opportunities presented to Nunez last night. Talking on talkSPORT, the former England striker commented:
“I think Nunez could have scored at least one goal.”
“The volley that Nunez did after the free kick from Robertson, he really didn’t show any conviction. Nunez let the ball hit his heel.”
“If Nunez had shown real faith, he could have scored. A top class striker on any other night – if it’s Haaland or maybe Harry Kane, maybe they had a hat-trick tonight.”
“In terms of second half chances, Nunez had too much time to think about how to handle it. In the end, he sent the ball wide of the goal.”
