Visually-Impaired fan celebrates Salah’s goal: Mohamed Salah scored the only goal in the game as Liverpool advanced to round-of-16 of Champions League.
Mohamed Salah’s goal was the only difference between the two sides as Liverpool beat Napoli to advance to the round-of-16 of the Champions League.
Both the sides needed a win to proceed to the next round. Salah scored in the first half, and Alisson made an incredible save in the injury-time to deny Napoli an equalizer at Anfield.
The last year’s Champions League finalists secured a berth in the next round as they finished second in their group, behind French side Paris Saint Germain.
After the game, a video of a visually-impaired fan celebrating Salah’s goal at Anfield has emerged on the social media.

Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the match from a fairly difficult angle as he gave Liverpool the lead in the game against Napoli.
As the game came to end, TV presenter Tony Cherchi posted a video of a visually-impaired fan celebrating the goal at Anfield.
In the video, the fan celebrates when the goal is scored, while his friend later tells him about how Salah put the ball into the net.
Describing the video, Cherchi wrote, “The best picture I had to see tonight at Anfield. This blind amateur celebrating the goal of Salah and his friend telling him how the play was. No words. That’s why football is unique!”
Here’s the video:

Alisson made an extraordinary save towards the end of the game to ensure Liverpool’s qualification into the round-of-16 of the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp was upbeat after the win, stating that the defensive display by the side was ‘some of the best I ever saw.’
“I’m still full of adrenaline. This game was amazing, outstanding. The boys played with their whole hearts; each part of their body,” Klopp said.
“I’m not sure if a manager has EVER been more proud of a team than I am now.” 👏
“What a game! That is Anfield life!”
“I have no idea how Alisson made that save!” 😅

“Our offensive pressing and defending was some of the best I ever saw.”
Liverpool will return to action in the Premier League as they take on Manchester United in a high-profile fixture at Anfield. Mourinho’s side is currently 6th in the Premier League table, and will play their final group game of the Champions League against Valencia later tonight.
Next week you’re going to have every Liverpool fan cheering on Everton and every Manchester City fan cheering on Manchester United. It really will be Merseyside vs Manchester. Title races do some strange things to people.
