Goalkeeper Alisson heads Liverpool to happiness

In the duel between relegated West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool FC, it looks like a draw for a long time. Only in stoppage time does goalkeeper Alisson release Jürgen Klopp’s team and give the Reds the chance to win the Champions League. The trainer is absolutely over the moon.

Goalkeeper Alisson gave Liverpool FC and team manager Jürgen Klopp an important success in the battle for the Champions League with a last-minute goal. The Brazilian, who stormed forward, headed a corner from Trent Alexander-Arnold worth seeing for the 2: 1 (1: 1) winning goal at the already established relegated West Bromwich Albion (90 + 5). The fifth in the table moves two game days before the end of the season, with 63 points now, up to one point on fourth-placed Chelsea. “Sometimes I practice headers in training, but just for fun,” Alisson said on Sky. “I couldn’t be happier than now.”

His father died unexpectedly in February. “I hope he was here to see it. I’m sure he’s celebrating with God by his side,” said Alisson, who became the first goalkeeper in Liverpool club history to score in a competitive game since 1892. “It’s the best goal I’ve ever seen from a goalkeeper,” Klopp told the BBC. “Strikers usually score goals like this. When Olivier Giroud scores a goal like that, it’s called world class. Wow!” The team manager sympathized emotionally with his goalkeeper: “He’s our brother. When he suffers, we all suffer. There are more important things than football, but if football can deliver moments like this, then it’s the best thing for a few seconds there is out there. ”

At the beginning of the game, Klopp had little reason to be happy. Liverpool had overslept the beginning of the game. Hal Robson-Kanu surprisingly gave the hosts the lead (15th). Mohamed Salah equalized for the Reds with a technically fine finish from the edge of the box (33rd), whereby the post provided some help. Two minutes later, ex-Hoffenheim’s Roberto Firmino hit the post from 15 meters. After the break, last year’s champions were overwhelmingly superior, but rarely came up with compelling chances. On the other side, Alisson Robson-Kanus prevented a double (78th). Liverpool full-back Alexander-Arnold shot free-standing from seven meters over the goal (83rd).
