The good performance with the national team against Jordan must have convinced coach Saurini to fit Frank Liivak back into the starting XI. After three games on the bench (he missed Latina-Napoli 1-1 due to the international duty) Frank found his place back on the left wing where new signing, Cicerello, had replaced him for a while.
The great form of the Estonian international is confirmed by a great first half in the win against Frosinone in the home fixture held today in Sant’Antimo.
Frank had already a chance to bring Napoli forward when on 5’ minutes he was on one on one against goalkeeper De Lucia favoured by a mistake by midfielder Gargiulo. The Frosinone goalkeeper was outstanding in parrying the shot and then managing to catch the ball on the rebound before Persano could tap it in.
On 10’ minutes Frank compelled the referee to use the yellow card as he was stopped by defender Ferrara who stopped a promising foray towards the penalty box. One minute later, the same Ferrara committed a foul in the box one minute later and Prezioso transformed the penalty (12’).
One minute later Liivak was booked for committing a foul in the midfield. On 29’ minutes, Frank had another chance from one on one situation. None of the defenders could stop his overwhelming foray as Frank slotted into the box past three of them in a maradonesque style. Quite incredibly, he shot past the post.
Five minutes later, Napoli made 2-0 thanks to Supino’s header from corner kick.
In second half, and this is a good piece of news, Saurini did not pull him out because of the booking and Frank was involved in the build-up of the third goal (Romano, 64').
Napoli made it 4-0 on 73' minutes with Persano.
Frank could have rounded it up to 5-0 on injury time if he hadn't exceeded with dribblings and had shot on goal earlier.
His performance returning from the international break has certainly impressed Saurini who might employ him further in the next games.
