Liverpool FC achieved an important success in the battle for the Champions League with a late goal.
The special thing about it: Goalkeeper Alisson, who had stormed forward, headed a corner from Trent Alexander-Arnold for a 2: 1 (1: 1) winning goal at the already established relegated West Bromwich Albion (90 + 5).
The fifth in the table moved up to one point on fourth-placed Chelsea with 63 points two game days before the end of the season.
"Sometimes I practice headers in training, but just for fun," Alisson said on Sky after the game.
"I couldn't be happier than I am now." In February, his father died unexpectedly.
“I hope he was here to see this.
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.

At first it didn't look good for the team of coach Jürgen Klopp: Hal Robson-Kanu surprisingly brought the home team into the lead (15th), Mohamed Salah equalized with a technically fine finish from the edge of the box (33rd). Two minutes later, ex-Hoffenheim's Roberto Firmino hit the post from 15 meters. Only in stoppage time did Alisson release the guests with his header.
