Mo Salah was left on the bench for Liverpool‘s Champions League clash with Porto on Wednesday night – but he still showed his class in a brief cameo.
Liverpool drew 0-0 with the Portuguese side at Anfield to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League, having won 5-0 in the away leg last month.
Salah was one of Porto’s chief tormentors in that first leg, and their defence will no doubt have been relieved to see the attacker given a breather on the bench at the start of the game.
But Jurgen Klopp did bring the Egypt international on with just over 15 minutes remaining, and the 25-year-old took no time in getting up to speed with the game, sumptuously plucking the ball out of the air with his first touch of the game.
These players knew how to make their mark.
