Indian national team goalkeeper, Gurpreet Singh Sandhu has admitted that he cannot stop watching Liverpool shotstopper, Alisson Becker's last-gasp goal against West Bromwich Albion, which gave the Reds an important win on the night.

Alisson pulled off an inch-perfect angular header off a corner kick in stoppage time, which is rare to see especially when it comes from a goalkeeper. Sandhu has revealed that he cannot stop watching the goal and that doing something like that is brilliant.

"I just can't stop watching his (Becker) header again, and again. Maybe it just happened – the ball fell in place and out of pure commitment he glided the ball – and what a header. But if he is doing that regularly in practice, then we have to admit that he is extra special," he said as quoted by Deccan Herald.

The 29-year-old has in the past been pictured leaving his post to go up and help out in attack, and while he is not desperate to score a goal - he wouldn't mind grabbing one if the opportunity came his way.

"Not that I am desperate to do it, and I hope that I don't have to do it ever. Obviously, there have been quite a few times that I have gone up for my club Bengaluru FC, and also during my stint with previous clubs. But if the team requires it as per the situation, who knows? But I would rather leave it to Sunil Chhetri. He is much better at it than me."

The shotstopper will soon be seen in action when India travel to Qatar to play their remaining 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
