The victory for Liverpool. And what a victory! Thanks to a goal from their goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, the Reds have disposed of West Bromwich (1-2) away this Sunday, during the 36th day of the Premier League. The Brazilian international goalkeeper placed a magnificent header from a corner in stoppage time (see below), to offer three valuable points to Anfield residents for a place in C1. “I am too moved. These last few months, with all that has happened for me, for my family, sighs Alisson, who lost her father in February, at the microphone of Sky Sports. Football is my life. I have always played it in my earliest memories, with my father and I hope he was there to see it. "
The former Roma then opened up about the goal, the first for a goalkeeper in Liverpool history. “Sometimes we fight but things just don't go the way we want, like this afternoon. But by scoring this goal, I'm very, very happy to help (my team) because we really fought together and we have a huge goal, to qualify in the Champions League. (…) I looked at the bench but no one called me. After that it was just perfect timing, the cross was great and I just tried to put the lead. I think it's one of the best goals I've ever seen (laughs). In any case, it is the most beautiful that I have marked. You can't explain this kind of thing, it's just football (...) There are a lot of things thatone can explain in life, but for this type of thing, it is God who put his hand on my head today and I feel really blessed ”, added the Brazilian, very believing.
Thanks to this success, Liverpool, fifth in the standings, returned to a small point behind Chelsea and three from Leicester, recent winner of the England Cup and… next opponent of the Reds, on the 37th day.
Jurgen Klopp's players therefore have their destiny in their hands.
Thanks to Alisson Becker.
