The 26-year-old's opener at the Estadio do Dragao took his tally to 10 goals in the knockout round of the elite European tournament as Jurgen Klopp's men eased to a 4-1 win over Porto on Wednesday night.
The strike ranked him as the third African player to hit the double-figure after Drogba and Eto’o with 10 and 14 goals respectively.
Later in the encounter, Mohamed Salah doubled the Reds' lead in the 65th minute before Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk rounded up the result for a 6-1 aggregate win.
The goals from the Senegal and Egypt internationals also draw them level with Liverpool legend Ian Rush as the club's joint second highest Champions League goalscorer with 14 goals, seven behind Steven Gerrard's 21 goals.
