"It Was Unexplainable, God Put His Hands On My Head"- Alisson Says After He Scored For Liverpool

Earlier today, West Bromwich Albion hosted Liverpool at the Hawthorne, in a game that meant so much to the former EPL champions. Robson-Kanu gave West Brom the lead in the opening 15 minutes. Liverpool fought to level the scores before half-time and they did, when Mohamed Salah scored a wonderful goal. The match remained 1-1 all throughout the 90th minute, until Alisson Becker scored a powering header in the fifth minute of added time. That was the winning goal, as West Brom were defeated 1-2 by Liverpool.

After the game, Alisson Becker spoke to Sky Sports, where he gave insights, on how he scored the goal. Alisson Becker admitted that he is emotional, given that his father died about two months ago. He revealed that football is "his life" and wished his father was alive when he scored the goal. He dedicated the goal to his family and his team-mates.

When he was asked if anyone urged him to go up for the corner, Alisson Becker revealed that Liverpool's Goalkeeper Coach, John Achterberg told him to try his luck. He claimed his goal, is one of the best goals he has ever seen and said he cannot even explain how he scored it. Alisson said "God put his hands on my head, i cannot explain how it happened".

He appreciated the Premier League, Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City and Carlo Ancelotti for standing by him when he was downtrodden, because of his father's death. He also thanked his wife, Natalia Becker and his children for motivating him.
