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.

Check out what Shaqiri did below:

After the game, the Swiss international said he thoroughly enjoyed his first European night at the historic stadium and felt how loud the fans were throughout the game. It was certainly a memorable Champions League debut with Liverpool for the 26-year-old.

  1. FINALY !!!!!
    Finally someone says something about it. I was saying it since the moment Firmino scored the goal that we need a spirit like Shaqiri’s that believes and never say die, and not like Salah that goes on dejected because he gave the ball away and did not score a goal.

  2. I think the negative event in last season’s Champions League is embedded in Salah’s subconscious mind. Removing it via hypnotic theraphy can erase this, hence putting Salah back to his natural scoring habit in all games. Try it, there’s nothing to lose.
