Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to rave about Mohamed Salah after he scored in a pre-season friendly against Wigan.
The 25-year-old attacker struck on the brink of half time to equalise for the Reds, after Alex Gibley had opened the scoring for the Lactics.
At the break Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp substituted Salah, along with the rest of his side, as he made 11 changes for the second half.
However, the substitutions did not prove to be fruitful as the match ended in a 1-1 draw, and the closest the Reds came to netting was when Dejan Lovren headed against the post.
Salah became the Merseysiders’ first signing of the summer when he put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal last month.
The Egyptian international and former Chelsea star arrived at Anfield from Roma where he impressed last season.
He was one of Roma’s top performers in the 2016-17 campaign, scoring 19 goals in 41 league and cup games, as well as providing 15 assists.
The Anfield faithful lose their minds after Salah’s first goal in a Liverpool shirt, despite the fact it came in a pre-season friendly.
Here is a selection of the best messages on Twitter.

Salah has been capped by Egypt on 53 occasions, and he played the full 90 minutes in his nation’s 1-0 African Cup of Nations qualifying defeat to Tunisia last month.
Since his arrival at Anfield, he has been joined by Dominic Solanke, but Klopp will undoubtedly look to bring in more new faces before the end of the summer.
In other Liverpool transfer news, this midfielder looks like he is on his way out of Anfield.
