Trent Alexander-Arnold Tried To Recreate His Iconic Corner Kick Against Salzburg

Trent Alexander-Arnold Tried To Recreate His Iconic Corner Kick Against Salzburg

Trent Alexander-Arnold attempted one of his quick-thinking corners in Liverpool's Champions League win against Salzburg on Wednesday night.

Five months after he turned provider for Divock Origi during that famous win over Barcelona last season, the 20-year-old caught the visitors' defence napping with another perfectly weighted delivery.

But despite his eagerness from the corner flag, teammate Sadio Mane failed to convert past goalkeeper Cican Stankovic to make it 5-3.

Any touch from the in-form Senegalese international would have been enough but he somehow failed to find the net from two yards.

Liverpool went on to secure all three points in the Group E tie thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Salah (2) but this moment involving Alexander-Arnold was one of the more memorable moments for fans.

Mostly because of the 'nostalgic effect' from that famous night against Barcelona in May.



Of course, Alexander-Arnold's magnificent corner-kick at Anfield against Barcelona still lives fresh in the memory for many Liverpool fans, especially Oakley Cannonier.

The youngster shot to fame after his quick thinking allowed the right-back to complete his assist.


Cannonier's crucial part in Liverpool's dramatic win over Barcelona got everyone talking including former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who praised his stunning efforts.

"You want a quick throw-in, the ball boy needs to know that you want a quick throw-in. The ball needs to arrive fast. The goal-kicks, the tempo of the game, the ball boys can also play a part in a good structure," he said.

"I was a ball boy, a top ball boy... when I was a ball boy, I even knew where the players wanted the ball for a corner, so they didn't need to touch the ball.

"A real football club, every detail is very, very important. In this game, the kid, very intelligent, very bright.

"I don't know if he is an academy player or not, but the kid knew what he was going to do.

"Then [Trent] Alexander-Arnold, he read the situation fantastically well. Young kid, Champions League semi-final, tired, 80 minutes of football. He saw everything.

"And then of course, Origi, he could have put the ball over the bar, it's not easy, but he put it there [in the goal]."
