Everybody played his role: Mohamed Salah

DOHA: Liverpool star striker Mohamed Salah said that the team’s all-round performance saw them secure a spot in the FIFA Club World Cup final after beating Monterrey 2-1 on Wednesday night.

The Egypt international, who rolled out the ball for Naby Keita to score the opening goal, felt the win was secured by first-class efforts from every area of the pitch.

“Firmino joined the match in the final minutes and scored with his first touch, Alisson also saved many chances and the Trent Alexander-Arnold who crossed the ball,” said Salah. “Everybody contributed to the team. I think we all deserve the Man of the Match.”

The 27-year-old was awarded the FIFA Man of the Match for the game, but gave credit to his team-mates.

“Everybody played his role. I think in the end we showed our quality and won in the last minute. I think we deserved it,” said Salah, who joined the Premier League side from AS Roma in 2017.
