Gary Lineker reacts to Mohamed Salah’s goal in Liverpool FC’s 5-0 win at Porto
The Spurs legend hails Mohamed Salah's seventh Champions League goal of the season in a comfortable win at FC Porto
Gary Lineker showed his appreciation for Mohamed Salah’s goal on Twitter after Liverpool FC were comprehensive 5-0 winners at Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
The Egypt international has scored three goals in his last two Premier League games to take his tally to 22 goals in the English top flight this season.
Liverpool FC made the breakthrough at a rain-drenched Estadio do Dragao in the 25th minute of the first leg when Sadio mane’s effort crept under Porto goalkeeper Malheiro de Sa.
The Reds were 2-0 up less than 10 minutes later when Salah showed superb composure to control a loose ball in the penalty area and finish past Sa after Milner hit the woodwork.
Salah has now scored seven times in nine games in the Champions League this season to put Liverpool FC in charge of the last-16 tie ahead of the second leg.
Former Tottenham forward Lineker took to Twitter to lavish praise on Salah following his clinical finish in Porto.
Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Oh Salah. Oh I say.”
He added: “Check out this impudent finish from Salah who becomes the 13th player in Liverpool’s history to score 30 goals in a season.”
Mane completed his hat-trick in the second half, while Firmino scored his 20th goal of the season in all competition to wrap up a 5-0 win.
Liverpool FC signed Salah in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window.
The Reds scored 23 times in six Champions League group-stage games in the current campaign.
Liverpool FC haven’t won the Champions League title since 2005.
