EMOTIONAL DIAZ GOAL RESCUES DRAW FOR LIVERPOOL AT LUTON Dedicated his goal to his father who is in the hands of Colombian kidnappers
Liverpool forward Luis Diaz came off the bench to score a late equaliser in a 1-1 Premier League draw at struggling Luton Town and dedicated the goal to his father who is in the hands of Colombian kidnappers.
The 26-year-old dropped out of Liverpool’s game last week as news broke that his parents had been seized by armed men, but he asked to be back in the squad and manager Juergen Klopp sent him on for the final minutes with the visitors a goal down.
As Liverpool poured forward, Diaz leapt to meet a Harvey Elliott cross in the fifth minute of time added on, before revealing an undershirt that read “Freedom For Dad”.
A Colombian guerrilla movement has said they will release his father, after earlier freeing his mother.
