CAIRO – 2 June 2019: Liverpool Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, played a massive role in his team’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday night in Madrid.
The Egyptian opened the score from the penalty spot after two minutes and he has been sensational during the whole game.
“Being Egyptian and getting to this level in football is something incredible to me. I have sacrificed a lot in my life for my football career," Salah said after the game.
Salah became the first Egyptian player to win the prestigious trophy and the second Arab player to score in the final after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer who scored for Porto in 1987 final.
The Egyptian winger added “There has not been no great individual performance, we have played as a team and we have all been amazing."
Liverpool have had an outstanding season which ended with achieving the Champions League title after 14 years of absence.
Liverpool were also sensational at the domestic league as they reached 97 points but finished second behind the winners, Manchester City who reached 98 points.
