Doma United goalkeeper Kingdom Osayi has drawn comparisons with Liverpool's Alisson Becker after his heroics for Doma United in the NPFL.

The talented goalkeeper was in fine creative form after he inspired Doma United’s impressive derby win in the NPFL, drawing comparisons from Liverpool superstar Alisson Becker.

Osayi and Doma United served a spectacle at the Pantami Stadium following a 3-0 thrashing of city rivals, Gombe United, in the derby on Sunday afternoon.

With the visitors leading 1-0 thanks to Emmanuel Ekpeyong’s 52nd-minute opener, it was another Emmanuel, Jesam, who benefited from the show of unique skills and vision from his goalkeeper. 

Two minutes after Ekpeyong’s curtain raiser, the goalkeeper defied the typical expectations of his role in a way reminiscent of Liverpool’s Alisson Becker.

He picked out Jesam, with a fantastic long-range pass and the forward made no mistakes to loop the goalkeeper. 

Jesam and Osayi combined again six minutes before time, with a similar pass, this time from the right to complete the rout. 

Earning the Alisson Nickname

Kingdom Osayi’s impressive display not only left fans and pundits in awe but praise, with the nickname ‘Alisson Becker’ from one of the fans.

The comparison to the Brazilian international and Liverpool star, widely regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world, lays credence to Osayi’s extraordinary display and his impact on the game as a ballplaying goalkeeper.

Kingdom’s role as an outfield playmaker in the derby has not only surprised fans but also played a crucial role in Doma’s impressive win over neighbours Gombe. 

Doma has also taken to their social media accounts to celebrate Osayi, who has also kept three clean sheets in five appearances this season in the NPFL.
