Liverpool forward Mo Salah missed a number of gilt-edged chances against Red Bull Salzburg yesterday evening but he did manage to finish from the unlikeliest of angles to seal the 2-0 win.
It didn’t seem it was going to be the Egyptian international’s night but his right-footed shot on the hour mark somehow managed to find the corner of the net. Fans on Twitter reacted in disbelief following the goal:
I don’t understand this man sometimes 😂

Magic angle ⚽

Salah has scored 11 goals in 21 appearances this season, but there’s no doubt that figure could have been higher considering the finishing ability he has.
Scoring with his weaker foot from such a narrow angle really shouldn’t be possible but somehow the 27-year-old manufactured a shot which found the net.
It was Salah’s second goal in two matches, and supporters will be hoping he can get on the scoresheet once again when the Reds face Watford in the league at Anfield this weekend.
