Egyptian International winger Mohamed Salah scored his 18th goal this season to continuo a strong display with Liverpool as they thrash Spartak Moscow 7-0 to clinch first place in its Champions League group and become the fifth English team to qualify for the last 16.
Handed the captain's armband four months after asking to leave the club، Coutinho led Liverpool's dismantling of Spartak with two goals in the opening 15 minutes before his completing his first hat trick for the Reds in the 50th.
Roberto Firmino’s goal، Sadio Mane’s double، and Mohamed Salah got the last goal as Liverpool won 7-0 for the second time in Group E and topped it by three points from second-place Sevilla. Spartak finish in third place and dropped into the Europa League.
It is the first time a country has had five representatives in the knockout stage of Europe's top club competition، signalling a revival by the English after years of underachievement since Chelsea was European champion in 2012.
