Mamadou Sakho and Divock Origi take selfie on Liverpool fan's phone

Published Add your comment

A Liverpool fan lost his phone while celebrating the club’s dramatic 4-3 win over Borussia Dortmund.

He probably didn’t care too much. After watching Dejan Lovren’s 91st minute, nothing could have upset him at that point.

Fortunately for Liamie Marum, his phone was later handed back to him by security and he discovered an incredible photograph had been added to it.

The device was picked up by Liverpool heroes Mamadou Sakho and Divock Origi and the duo proceeded to take a selfie before handing it in.

What’s incredible is that the selfie wasn’t taken after the full-time whistle, but after Lovren’s goal. That’s how wild things got at Anfield.

The caption reads: “Well what can I say but unbelievable. I lost my phone celebrating nearly on top of Lovern [sic] at the corner flag and I lost my phone. After everyone eventually went back to the Kop, the security came up handed me my phone back as I was sitting on row 3. I checked it just now and look.”

One imagines the photo is now Liamie’s screensaver, and will remain so forever.

Incredible comeback

Sakho and Origi both scored as Liverpool booked their place in the Europa League semi-final.

After Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave the Bundesliga outfit a 2-0 lead inside 10 minutes, the Belgian striker scored three minutes after half-time to get the Reds back into the contest.

Marco Reus restored Dortmund’s two goal-advantage before Philippe Coutinho’s strike found the bottom corner.

The Brazilian maestro then turned provider, his corner finding its way to Sakho and the Frenchman steered the ball home.

The defender’s goal set up an incredible finish and Lovren completed the comeback in the 91st minute when he headed in James Milner’s perfect cross.

Sakho praised Liverpool's fans

Sakho revelled in the moment, celebrating vociferously at the final whistle. Jurgen Klopp’s passion appeared to rub off on the defender, who has proved his critics wrong with several impressive displays in recent months.

Afterwards, the 26-year-old admitted Anfield has the “best atmosphere in England”.

“It was just marvellous," Sakho told beIN Sports, per ESPN FC. “In football, the strongest and most memorable is this type of victory. We work every day at training to be able to play in these kind of games. When we come out with a win at the end, of course we'll savour it.

"We work for that and honestly today I think we can be proud of ourselves. We played with heart.

"The public were extraordinary. It's not for nothing that this stadium is mythical and has the best atmosphere in England."
