A couple of feints and intricate footwork was enough to bamboozle the Portuguese defender, and Davies coasted pass and picked out Kimmich who slotted home with ease.
And Ferdinand has lauded the youngster’s display in what was an incredibly impressive performance from the Bundesliga champions, but warned Semedo to stay away from social media for a few days.
‘It’s uncalled for what he’s just done there – it shouldn’t be allowed,’ he said on BT Sport. ‘It’s embarrassing, if I’m Semedo I’d come off Instagram for a little while.’

In fact, Robertson reacted to Davies’ stunning piece of skill on social media, retweeting the clip with a open-mouthed emoji, clapping hands and a flame.
‘He’s the best attacking full-back on the planet at the minute. He was amazing today. That’s full-back setting up full-back to score – it’s expansive open football.’
Bayern Munich will face either Manchester City or Lyon in the semi finals, and their performance on Friday firmly secured them as the favourites to win the competition this season.
