Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu has capped off his impressive start in the 2021/2022 season with his first Southampton FC goal in the Carabao Cup win against Sheffield United on Tuesday.
Southampton advanced to the next round after winning on penalties following a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United at the Bramall Lane in the EFL Cup.
The towering defender swept home a cross from Nathan Tella to give the Saints a 2-1 lead in the 53rd minute, having been behind earlier in the game.
