Especially after helping Real Madrid win the trophy in the Champions League final in May, a goalkeeper of quality like Thibaut Courtois could do something so reckless with the ball in his box. No one would think it would.
Exceptionally, that’s exactly what happened at Anfield, with the Belgian fumbling for the ball, Mo Salah pushing him for space, and giving the Egyptian a shot in the midst of all he’s ever signed up for in the competition. gave probably the easiest goal.
It gave the former Roma star a special honour, becoming the Reds’ top scorer in European competition and fully establishing himself as an undisputed great club.
