LIVERPOOL starlet Curtis Jones dedicated his goal against Sheffield United to teammate Alisson after his father’s tragic passing.
Jose Agostinho Becker, 57, drowned in a lake near his home in Lavras do Sul, Brazil, last week.
Alisson was sadly unable to attend his funeral due to coronavirus restrictions.
And the 28-year-old stopper was not involved in Sunday’s 2-0 win against the Blades at Bramall Lane.
Jones opened the scoring after 48 minutes before Kean Bryan’s 64th minute own-goal sealed the result.
Liverpool’s win ended a run of four consecutive league defeats.
And Jones paid tribute to Alisson by declaring his goal was in honour of the goalie’s late father.
Jones, 20, said: “It’s been a difficult time for me and the rest of the team.
“This goal is for Ally’s dad. If he sees this, this is for you bro.
“He’s a strong lad and a big part of the team. We miss him for sure.
“I’m dedicating my goal to him and his dad, and his family.
“It was a good team performance. I’m happy that we get the points and we can go again.
“Today was a good example of putting it all together.
“I am happy I scored and I’m happy for the rest of the team.”
The result sees sixth-place Liverpool move to within two points of a Champions League spot.
And they will be hoping their form continues against rivals Chelsea on Thursday, with the Blues just one point above them in fifth.
