Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson swapped saving goals for scoring one as his stunning stoppage-time header helped Liverpool defeat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Sunday.
It’s the first time in the club’s history that a goalkeeper has scored a competitive goal, according to data site Opta, and the header sparked wild celebrations from Liverpool’s players.
Alisson came up into the West Brom box in the fifth minute of added time and guided a header from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner past his opposite number Sam Johnstone, who remained stationary on the goal line.
