VIDEO: Salisu registers first-ever goal in Southampton colours

Ghana defender Mohammed Salisu capped off his impressive start to the 2021/22 season with his first goal for Southampton FC in an EFL Cup win Tuesday night.

The Saints advanced to the next round after winning on penalties following a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane.

Salisu swept home a cross from Nathan Tella to give Southampton a 2-1 lead in the 53rd minute, having been behind earlier in the game.

French midfielder Ibrahima Diallo scored in the 23rd minute to cancel out Enda Stevens early goal for the home side.

Sheffield levelled matters through Ollie McBurnie in the 66th minute.

Salisu has been outstanding for the Saints since the beginning of the season including intriguing displays against Manchester United and Manchester City in the Premier League.

The 21-year-old towering centre-back has featured in all five matches in the Premiership and produced stellar performances.
