Mohamed Salah nominated for Champions League Goal of the Week
Mohamed Salah has been nominated for the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week for his strike against AS Roma at Anfield Stadium in the semi-final.
Salah found the net twice against his former club in their 5-2 win in the first leg of the Champions League . But it was his first curling strike, which opened the scoreline, that has been nominated for Goal of the Week.
The Egyptian is competing with Marcelo and Marco Asensio (Real Madrid), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), and Roma’s Radja Nainggolan after the latter fired an unstoppable strike past Liverpool’s keeper Loris Karius in the second leg at Stadio Olimpico.
Liverpool have earned themselves a ticket to the final in Kiev, Ukraine, on May 26 after defeating AS Roma 7-6 on aggregate.
The 25-year-old winger became the first ever Egyptian to reach the Champions League final. He also became the highest scoring African in one UCL campaign after scoring 10 goals for Liverpool in their road to Kiev.
He has previously collected the Champions League Goal of the Week award for his goal against Manchester City, when the Reds earned a 2-1 win in the second-leg of the quarter-final at Etihad Stadium.
