It is not every day you see a goalkeeper score a 95th-minute winner. In fact, in Liverpool’s 129-year history, no goalkeeper has ever scored in a competitive match for the club.
So when Alisson nodded in a dramatic winner for Liverpool against westbrom ,the crucial goal keeps Liverpool’s Champions League qualification hopes in their own hands .
Alisson paid tribute to his late father immediately afterwards in an emotional interview.
“I hope he was here to see it, I’m sure he is celebrating with God at his side,” said the Brazilian.
And he joked: “Hopefully I don’t have to come up too many times to score goals!”
“I’m too emotional, this last month for everything that has happened with me and my family, but football is my life, I played since I can remember with my father,” said Alisson.
“Sometimes you are fighting and things aren’t happening. I’m really happy to help them because we fight together and have a strong goal to achieve the Champions League, because we have won it once and everything starts with qualification”
Alisson’s father, Jose Agostinho Becker, died aged 57 in Brazil with local police saying he had drowned at a dam near his holiday home in Lavras do Sul.
