Mohammed Kudus scores screamer against Liverpool
Mohammed Kudus’ unbelievable screamer for Ajax against Liverpool on Tuesday night stunned Anfield.
The 22-year-old made his third straight start of the season for the Champions League match on Merseyside.
Mohamed Salah was well-positioned by Diogo Jota, and the Egyptian was perfect from 15 yards out to give his team the lead.
Ajax had played for nine hours before they gave up their first goal. The Amsterdam giants had last given up a goal against Groningen on August 14 before Tuesday night.
The home crowd was quieted when Kudus scored a screamer to level the game and shorten their lead.
Kudus’s ball was recovered by Steven Berghuis, who sprinted down the left side.
The 22-year-old skipped Virgil van Dijk, turned inside the penalty area, and fired a vicious left-foot shot that sailed under the bar and into the goal.
Joel Matip gave Liverpool the victory late in the contest.
After Ajax vetoed his sale to Everton during the summer transfer window, Mohammed Kudus has already scored five goals in his previous four games.
