Anfield went dead silent: Victor Wanyama on his thunderbolt against Liverpool

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has given a glimpse of the Anfield atmosphere after he notched a belter for Spurs in a clash against Liverpool last season.

Spurs had visited Liverpool on February 2018 with Wanyama starting the game on the bench. Mohammed Salah had given the hosts a third-minute lead but there was much drama towards the end of the game.

The Harambee Stars captain was introduced later in the game to cancel Salah’s goal but there were two goals later from Kane and another from Salah which saw the game end in a 2-2 draw.

Speaking to Madgoat Tv on Monday Wanyama said: “I was on the bench for the game and they had scored. It's an intimidating ground so the noise was on the roof. The coach told me to go warm-up and I was introduced at around the 75th minute.

“My first contribution was to Eriksen (Christian). He floated the ball in the box and the keeper punched it. When I saw the ball rolling I only had one thing in mind; to hit it. I didn’t care whether it was going to get to the fans or heaven. When it went in, Anfield went dead silent. It was my first time to see that happen. I'm happy with the goal and the overall performance of the team because we got a draw.”

Wanyama has since left Spurs for Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact.
