Anfield witnessed yet another historic European night as Liverpool beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 in a thriller.
While the Reds raced into a 2-0 lead before half-time, the French champions fought their way back into the game and made it 2-2, courtesy of a goal from Thomas Meunier and another late one by Kylian Mbappe.
While that would have knocked the stuffing out of most teams, the Reds kept going and pushed hard for a winner. Liverpool’s summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri was thrown in by manager Jurgen Klopp in the hope of finding a late goal. The Swiss international had to deal with bottles being thrown at him by the PSG fans whenever he went up to take a corner.
However, the 26-year-old had the last laugh as Liverpool finally got their winner courtesy of a brilliant strike from another second-half substitute, Roberto Firmino.
When Liverpool won a corner just before Firmino’s goal, Shaqiri showed his passion for his new club, by urging the supporters to push the team on.
