Egyptian king dominates Champions League semi-final

Tue, Apr. 24, 2018
CAIRO – 24 April 2018: Liverpool defeated AS Roma 5-2 on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals at Anfield. Liverpool’s Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, was the hero of the night for Liverpool fans after an amazing performance.

Roma dominated the game in the first 20 minutes, but Liverpool returned to have control of the ball when Georginio Wijnaldum replaced Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who picked up an injury.

Salah had two chances to score but his shots were blocked by Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
