Mohamed Salah scored a breathtaking individual goal for Liverpool this afternoon against Watford - One which has reignited the debate over whether he is currently the best player in world football.
The Egyptian added Liverpool's fourth of the afternoon to all but assure the away side of all three points.
However, it was the nature of the finish that truly astounded everybody who witnessed it.
Salah, who had already laid on a beautiful assist for Sadio Mane in the game, somehow wriggled away from three Watford defenders just inside the penalty area, before cutting inside to leave Craig Cathcart on his back.
The 29-year-old then, nonchalantly as you like, curled the ball into the far corner of ben Foster's net, to score yet another goal of the season contender.
BT Sport commentator Jermain Jenas observed that it was "even better' than his strike against Manchester City a fortnight ago.
Here is the jaw-dropping goal in all its glory
STOP THAT, MO SALAH! :flag_eg::crown:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 16, 2021

The goal also led to many shouts of salah being the best player in world football.
Sadio Mane handed Liverpool an early lead in the game before a Roberto Firmino double firmly put Liverpool in control at Vicarage Road.
The away win also takes Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.
