As the final 10 minutes approached in Liverpool's Premier League clash with Norwich City at Carrow Road on 15 February 2020, with the score still locked at 0-0, Jordan Henderson received the ball in space in the center circle.
As he looked up to assess his options, the Reds captain spotted Sadio Mané's diagonal run between defenders from the left flank and lofted a pass his way.
Mané slightly misjudged the flight of the ball and had to readjust, but as he spun he was somehow able to bring it down with his left foot, and he then let it bounce before lashing it home at the near post. It proved to be enough to grab another victory for his side on its march to the title.
"The way Sadio Mané takes that out of the air and the way he snaps at it with his weaker foot is frightening," Norwich star Todd Cantwell said afterward (via the club's official website).
"We knew we were up against some of the best players in the world. Any sniff of a chance and you've got a horrible feeling they’re going to take it."
Indeed, one overlooked aspect of Mané's brilliance during his time at Liverpool was what you might call his balanced goalscoring.
The winger was right-footed but was also prolific with his left, as the numbers demonstrate. According to Transfermarkt, Mané scored 30 'left-footed shots' from open-play, which equates to exactly a quarter of his 120 Liverpool goals.
Diogo Jota is similarly adept at using both feet, scoring 12, or 29.3 per cent, of his 41 Reds goals to date with his weaker left, while Cody Gakpo has used his left for 17 (or 27.4 per cent) of his last 62 goals at club level (which accounts for his time at both PSV and Liverpool).
Intriguingly, Mohamed Salah would appear to be much more one-footed, having only scored with his right 14 per cent of the time (26 goals overall), but that doesn't necessarily matter when you find the net as often as he does. Indeed, Liverpool's Egyptian King is poised to reach the 200-mark next season.
On the other hand, Luis Díaz hasn't quite exploded for the Reds just yet, bagging 11 times in his first 47 appearances. He was a more prominent marksman for Porto — 41 in 125 — but even then he rarely finished with his left foot. In all, just eight of those 52 goals (15.4 per cent) have come from his weaker side.
We've previously written that Díaz needs to be targeting 20 goals a season, Mané's average across his Liverpool career, to truly emulate his predecessor, and one of the best ways to achieve that goal is to hone his weak foot into a more potent weapon.
Of course, a left winger cutting in will naturally have more chances on their right, though it's worth noting that Mané did play on the opposite flank during his first season at Anfield before the arrival of Salah.
But part of what made the Senegalese attacker so devastating was that he could go both ways and still convert, and that struck fear into defenders. His ability on his weak foot opened up shooting angles that wouldn't otherwise have been viable.
Liverpool recruited Díaz to be its heir to Mané, and if he's to hit the same heights on Merseyside, then he should identify this as a clear area to work on heading into the new season.
