Soccer-Liverpool keeper Alisson injured in opening game of the season

LIVERPOOL, England, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Liverpool’s Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker was injured and substituted during the first half of the Premier League season opener against promoted Norwich City on Friday.

With Liverpool 3-0 ahead in the 36th minute at Anfield, Becker slipped as he was playing the ball out and went down, holding his calf, calling for medical attention.

A stretcher was brought out for the keeper but he was able to leave the field with the help of support staff.
