Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Mohamed Salah scored the only goal in Liverpool's 1-0 win against Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday at Anfield, pushing the Reds into the round of 16.
Salah's score came in the 34th minute of the Group C finale.
Midfielder James Milner sliced a through ball through the Napoli defense to start the sequence, leading Salah into the box. Salah took a touch around left back Mario Rui before using his right boot to squeeze in a shot between the legs of Napoli keeper David Ospina and into the far-post netting.
"After 65 minutes it was really wild from both sides -- counter, counter, counter, counter -- and quick transitions without really finishing," Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said, according to LiverpoolFC.com.
"The goal Mo scored ... what a goal! Unbelievable. And the save Ali made, I have no words for that. That was a life-saver tonight. I'm really proud of what the boys did tonight."
