Alisson made the 80-meter journey into West Brom to find a goal that would give his team a chance to reach the Champions League.
Liverpool striker Alisson Becker scored in the 95th minute as the Reds beat West Brom 2-1 on Sunday to secure a place in next season’s Champions League on their hands.
Jurgen Klopp’s men would have sought the favor of Leicester and Chelsea in their last two campaign games without fail which had already been dropped.
But the Brazilian was sent to the corner just now to stop and go home to be sent to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Liverpool moved one point behind Chelsea who are fourth and three behind Leicester.
With Leicester and Chelsea still facing off in the FA Cup final, a 1-0 win over the Foxes on Saturday, a win over Burnley and Crystal Palace to give Liverpool the top four.
Alisson’s father drowned in February in a swimming accident in Brazil.
“It’s very touching. For the past few months of all that has happened to me, my family, but football is my life,” Alisson told Sky Sports.
“I play because I remember with my dad. I hope he came to see this, but I believe he saw it with God on his side and he is celebrating. ”

Manchester United’s first win in seven years on Thursday left Liverpool with a chance to win.
And with an injury that disrupted their Premier League defense, Klopp could have a chance to finally achieve his goal at The Hawthorns.
West Brom thought they would win 2-1 with 20 minutes to go down while Kyle Bartley connected a corner at home.
The Baggies supervisor was on the sidelines, but Matt Philipps was reported to have distorted Alisson’s mind while he was on the sidelines.
“Everything is fine if our season is brief,” Klopp said.
“We do a lot of good things, being punished for my first mistake and then acting like crazy. I liked it because no one climbed to the top, we just kept playing football and we had a good chance in the last five minutes. ”
Klopp had to endure without either of them for several months after being sidelined with multiple injuries and the inconsistent connection of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams suffered quickly.
Hal Robson-Kanu jumped for a 15-minute free kick and Phillips played for the Welshman and set off his first Premier League goal since 2017.
Sadio Mane was furious after being dropped in the middle of the week when he ran away from Klopp all this time as Germany celebrated their victory over United.
The Senegalese came back when Diogo Jota was not available due to injury, but his poor form shows he is changing as he got the chance to win from behind Thiago Alcantara.
Thanks to Liverpool, Mohamed Salah remained dead in front of goal and fired his 31e of the season to reach 33 minutes from the end of the box.
Roberto Firmino hit the post as the visitors finished the first round at the top.
Even when Mane found the net for the first time for the second time, he was rejected by the home flag.
West Brom had another reason to complain when Bartley’s goal was criticized.
Chances are still coming for the visitors as Alexander-Arnold blows up Sam Johnstone before Thiago and Gini Wijnaldum bend over.
But the most unexpected source came with a winner when West Brom were caught and passed late Alisson into the box to meet Alexander-Arnold’s corner.
“Ultimately, we need Ali to solve this problem,” added Klopp.
