Led by Divock Origi, Liverpool produced one of the greatest comebacks in Champions league history, after they overturned a three-goal first-leg deficit to beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate and reach the final.
Origi who was replacing the injured Firmino, fearlessly led the front line grabbing an early goal that opened the floodgates.
Second half substitute, Georginio Wijnaldum scored two quick goals to level the match sending the Anfield faithful into frenzy. Then Origi stepped up once again to completed a remarkable victory for Liverpool when he swept Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low corner into the back of the net late on.
His heroics won many hearts around the world including Kenyans thanks to his Kenyan roots.
His cousin and Kenyan international goalkeeper, Arnold Origi led the praises for Mike Okoth’s son branding as a ‘Master artist’.
Arnold who took to Instagram wrote;
You Never let up, Never gave up. Even when it got heartless in the middle of the dark heart, ur head was always high. High to the sky. Kept the faith and never doubted the MASTER ARTIST. Eyes firmly fixed on the prize. Now the MASTER ARTIST has turned the mess into a masterpiece 🙏🏾🙏🏾. So happy and proud of you @divockorigi.

Congratulations Origi and all the best to Tottenham tonight!
