John Arne Riise spent seven years at Anfield, joining in 2001, and this goal scored for Monaco may have been a big reason in securing his signature.
There haven’t been many with a better left foot than the Norwegian and this effort exemplifies that.
The Kop used to sing: ‘I wanna know, how you scored that goal‘ but there were so many to choose from and this effort may have even been better than any he scored for Liverpool.
Hitting a bouncing ball with a first-time effort around 40 yards out illustrates the confidence and ability he had with his explosive shots.
The ‘keeper went flying past his own post and our former left-back ran away in celebration, almost in shock from the goal.
What makes it all the more unbelievable, that was his first goal for the club!
