Salah Equals Eto'o's UCL Record

Liverpool's African superstar Mohamed Salah continued to prove he is among the best players in the world after equalling a UEFA Champions League goal record set by FC Barcelona legend Samuel Eto’o.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the top-scoring Africans in a single Champions League campaign.

The 25-year-old has shown he is worth every penny the Reds spent on him at the beginning of the campaign in which he has now scored 39 goals.

Salah was on target once again for Liverpool in the second leg of their quarter-final against Manchester City Tuesday night, when he pounced on a loose ball in the box.

The Egyptian's clever finish brought up his eighth UCL goal this season, which draws him level with Eto'o as the African scorer with the most strikes in a single Champions League campaign.
