  • Mo Salah Makes History Again With Liverpool’s Win

    Mo Salah

    Millions of cheers around the world were echoing louder than ever, with celebrations everywhere, and fans crying out of joy, singing, dancing, and taking social media by storm. All because of Liverpool’s win at the Champions League last night.

    Of course, our Egyptian pride, Mohamed Salah, scored the opening goal, with Divock Origi scoring the second. We can’t keep calm and we’re super excited, but what does that win mean to our Egyptian King? Let us fill you in!

    Liverpool won the famed league against Tottenham, with a score of 2 – 0, in Madrid after their remontada of beating Barcelona by 4 – 0. And now, as Mo Salah scored his goal from a penalty kick in the first seconds of the match, it became the second fastest goal in the history of the Champions League. The fastest was Paolo Maldini’s goal in just 50 seconds for AC Milan in the 2005 final.

    Not just that, but with this win, Mo became the first Egyptian player to win the Champions League and the first Arab to participate in the Champions League twice. He also became the third Arab to hold the title after Algerian, Rabah Majar, and the Moroccan, Ashraf Hakeemy.

    “Of course, I am so happy, it’s a little boy’s dream coming true. I am very happy with the title,” Salah told a beIN Sports reporter.

    Egyptians are excited about this win and celebrating it as if it’s the Egyptian team who won, all because of Salah. The legendary footballer has always brought smiles to our faces and has always given us hope, becoming the international role model that he is. Many of us are saying that now we can celebrate Eid properly, and this is the true joy of the holiday.
