After scoring a last minute header for Liverpool against West ham, he said that God touched his head to score the goal. Such is Alisson’s love and complete devotion to God.

However, apart from being an impressive goalkeeper and a devout Christian, Alisson is also an evangelist.

As part of being a member of the Hillsong church evangelical group, Alisson engages in witnessing for Christ.

The impact of his faith has reached football, as he has brought Roberto Firmino and Fred’s wife, Monique Salum into the faith.

He led Firmino to Christ and even baptized him in the swimming pool of his London home. Wife of Manchester United midfielder, Fred was not left out as she was also baptized by Alison.
