And within five minutes, the Hungarian had put the Reds ahead in the League Cup, with an unstoppable effort that hammered off the crossbar and in.
“B A N G !” was the response from Liverpool’s No. 8 on Instagram.
In the comments, Mac Allister jokingly told Szoboszlai to “keep drinking mate,” referring to the traditional South American drink yerba mate, typically enjoyed as a social exercise.
“What a goal,” wrote Wataru Endo, who came away with the assist.
And there were responses from former team-mates and rivals alike, with Bellingham simply writing “Szobooo” with a rocket emoji.
Ex-RB Leipzig team-mate Christopher Nkunku, now of Chelsea, echoed Szoboszlai’s “boom” caption, while ex-Liverpool and current Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi added a cheeky response.
“Put a lil more power in it,” the midfielder’s fellow Hungarian joked.
For what it’s worth, Szoboszlai isn’t convinced his goal on Wednesday night was a career best, as he explained in his interview with LFCTV.
“It was very special,” he explained.
“I don’t know if it was the best goal, I scored one of my best in the national team and also in Salzburg.
“But [it was] one of the best for sure.”
The 22-year-old added: “I’m just doing my things, working hard and always ready to fight for the team, for the fans, for myself.
“And as I get many chances, I want to give back.”
