But the Liverpool captain did not see the funny side of Lightweek when he turned to Cameron for a horrific stare at death.

Matep also tapped the heads of Fermino and Louis Diaz while standing on the touchline, but it was only Henderson who was unaffected by the incident.

Not surprisingly, social media was melted down after the international reaction in England.

One user tweeted: “I revived it in the game and watched it about five times, couldn’t stop laughing.”

Another commented: “It’s a really confusing look on Hando’s face.”

A third added: “Every time you look at it, it becomes more humorous.”

Meanwhile, the supporter said: “This is the most interesting video I’ve ever seen.”

Another said, “No, it’s about 3 o’clock and I’m still tickling her.”

Shortly after Fermino’s goal, Mohamed Salah doubled Liverpool’s lead in the 83rd minute but secured the club’s place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

But boss Jurgen Klopp has warned the Merseyside organization to refrain from being complacent on their way back to Anfield.

Speaking after the match, German Geffer said: “It’s still dangerous, it’s only half time. We don’t feel like we’re halfway through. We have to be prepared for that.

“They’re good – really good! 2-0 feels like a proper half-time. I don’t say, ‘Done, put your legs on the table.’ Why should I think differently now?”

“We defended very well – the way we like to win the ball. You have to defend with passion and organization.

“It was a really strong challenge (from Inter) but it would be foolish if you didn’t defend well. This competition means a lot to us, and we want to do well in it.

“It’s a tough place to come. They’re a very, very confident competitor. They’ve played real smart balls. They have that deep end line and we did very well in the beginning.

“I wasn’t surprised – they’re good. We know we have to be ready for the second half.”
