'Salah should win Nobel Prize for Physics' - Liverpool star's stunner helps secure Champions League progress

Mohamed Salah has sent Twitter into a spin after scoring a marvellous second goal for Liverpool in a vital Champions League game against Red Bull Salzburg.

The Reds were not guaranteed to progress from the group stage before kickoff and Napoli cantering to a 3-0 halftime lead put more pressure on the Merseysiders. The last team to be eliminated in the group stage as holders were Chelsea in 2012.

Salah had missed some presentable chances in the first period of an open game that Salzburg needed to win to advance.
