Mohammed Kudus scores screamer against Liverpool
Mohammed Kudus silenced Anfield on Tuesday evening with an absolute screamer for Ajax against Liverpool.
The 22-year-old was in the starting lineup for the Champions League game in Merseyside, his third consecutive start of the season.
Diogo Jota did well to set up Mohamed Salah, and the Egyptian made no mistake from 15 yards to put his team ahead.
That was the first goal conceded by Ajax in nine hours of play. Prior to Tuesday night, the Amsterdam giants had last conceded a goal on August 14 against Groningen.
They didn’t stay ahead for long, as Kudus scored a screamer to tie the game and silence the home crowd.
Steven Berghuis ran down the left side and retrieved the ball for Kudus.
The 22-year-old dribbled past Virgil van Dijk, turned inside the box, and unleashed a venomous left-foot strike that found the net via the underside of the bar.
Liverpool late in the game found the winner through Joel Matip.
Mohammed Kudus has now scored five goals in his last four games after Ajax blocked his transfer to Everton during the summer transfer window.
