The Egyptian national team player and Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah, was overjoyed after the 2:0 victory over Napoli, as well as the goal with which he equalized with Gerrard when it comes to the Champions League.
Tonight, at Anfield Road, the Liverpool players inflicted the first defeat of the season on Luciano Spalletti’s team, Napoli.
Mohamed Salah, after a ricochet in the penalty box of the goalkeeper Meret, was the most resourceful and pushed the ball into the net for Liverpool’s lead of 1:0 and with that goal he reached the number of the 41st goal, which made him equal with Steven Gerrard, when it comes to goals for the club in the Champions League.
“It’s a great feeling when you beat one of the best teams in the world at the moment. This will definitely mean something to us in the rest of the season, both in the Premier League and in the Champions League, because it gives us more confidence and self-belief,’ said Salah.
His goal was preceded by a VAR check, so the Egyptian could not celebrate the goal the way he wanted.
“To be honest, I didn’t know if it was my goal or if the ball crossed the goal line earlier. Thanks for finally confirming what I was hoping for.’ commented Mohamed.
At the end of the match, he was recognized as the best actor of tonight’s match.
“For me, the most important thing is that we won. It doesn’t matter if I am the scorer or someone else from the team, winning is the most important thing. Tonight’s triumph is, I repeat, very important for our confidence, because you know that in the Premier League, roses are not blooming for us this season. We were really good tonight and we deserved to win.’ Salah finished.
In the next round of the Premier League, the Liverpool team is visiting Tottenham, who tonight, after a turnaround and victory at the Velodrome against Marseille with a score of 1:2, also won the knockout phase.
