Super Eagles left-back, Zaidu Sanusi couldn't stop FC Porto's defeat to inform Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday, November 24.

The 23-year-old defender played the entire duration of the Group B encounter but was unable to stop the movement of rampaging Egyptian forward Mohammed Salah.

He was also the culprit for Liverpool's second goal as he failed to deal with long to Jordan Henderson, who then picked out Salah to fire home.

Recall that Sanusi had a bad game when both sides met in September for matchday two.

Thiago Alcantara opened the scoring seven minutes into the second half with a lovely strike, sending the ball back towards goal and into the bottom corner after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s freekick had been half-cleared, according to Brila.net.

Despite the defeat, Porto remains second on the table with 5 points, one point ahead of AC Milan who defeated Atletico Madrid at home.
