In a poignant and emotional moment, Liverpool forward Diaz celebrated his goal by lifting his shirt to reveal a heartfelt message: “freedom for papa.” His father remains missing, and the goal, scored five minutes into added time after a cross from Harvey Elliott, was a symbol of hope and a call for his father’s release.

Diaz’s Plea for Release:

After the match, Diaz issued a statement, urging those who are holding his father to release him immediately. This public plea reflects the personal turmoil the player is enduring while continuing to perform on the football field.

Diaz’s Return to the Team:

Despite the challenging circumstances, the 26-year-old former Porto player, Diaz, had not featured in a Liverpool squad for 10 days.

A Remarkable Conclusion:

Diaz’s late goal not only symbolized a plea for his missing father but also provided a remarkable conclusion to the match.
