Ajax’s new star Mohammed Kudus produced a stunning finish against Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Liverpool hosted Ajax at Anfield, their first outing since the Queen’s death last Thursday.
Prior to kick off, a minute’s silence was held as a mark of respect to the Queen, though a vast majority observed the silence impeccably, a handful of boos and jeers were heard, as reported by journalist at the ground.

Jurgen Klopp’s men got off to the perfect start after Mohamed Salah gave the Reds a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute, the Egypt international showed great composure to finish the move off after being put through by Diogo Jota.
However, Liverpool’s recent defensive fragilities were on show again as Ajax found their equaliser 10 minutes later.
Steven Berghuis went round the back of a static Liverpool defense before pulling the ball into the box.
22-year-old Kudus took a brilliant first touch before unleashing a rocket that speared past Alisson in the Liverpool goal.
A truly stunning finish to a brilliant move by the Dutch champions.
Fans were quick to react to the youngster's goal.
One fan said: "What a screamer from Mohammed Kudus. No keeper stops that!"
Another tweeted: "MOHAMMED KUDUS OUT OF NOWHERE!!!WHAT A BLOODY FINISH."
A third fan added: "You are witnessing the Kudus Mohammed Supremacy!!!"
