Salah shines with spectacular goal as Liverpool hammer Toulouse

Ahram Online , Thursday 26 Oct 2023

In yet another night of footballing brilliance, Mohamed Salah etched his name into history by becoming the all-time leading scorer for an English club in European competitions. Salah's 43rd European goal was a standout moment as Liverpool cruised to a 5-1 victory over Toulouse in the Europa League on Thursday.

Salah entered the pitch as a substitute in the 70th minute and took the captain's armband. His impact was immediate and unforgettable. Intercepting a pass inside the box, he artfully outmaneuvered the last defender and unleashed a powerful shot with his less-favored right foot, finding the top corner of the net in the 93rd minute to secure the fifth goal.

The scoring had begun with Diego Jota in the 9th minute, and Wataru Endo and Darwin Nunez added two more before halftime, giving Liverpool a commanding 3-0 lead. New signing Ryan Gravenberch marked his first European goal for the Reds in the 65th minute, while Salah's late strike put the finishing touch on the game.

Liverpool now sits atop Group E with a perfect record of nine points from three games.

Jurgen Klopp's squad is set to face Nottingham Forest in the English Premier League on Monday, where fans can expect more thrilling action from the Reds.
