A message from the Liverpool striker to his father

Colombian striker Luis Diaz, who was playing his first match since his parents were kidnapped last October 28, saved his Liverpool team from losing to humble Luton Town when he equalized 1-1 in stoppage time, Sunday, in the eleventh round of the English Premier League.
Diaz’s mother was rescued hours after her kidnapping, but his father is still in the hands of his kidnappers, who promised to release him in the last hours after they admitted that they had made a mistake.
After scoring the equalizer from a header in the fifth minute of stoppage time for the match after coming on as a substitute in the 83rd minute, Diaz celebrated by unveiling a shirt that read: “Freedom for my father.”
Diaz returned to training on Thursday, after missing two Liverpool matches, and said that he was ready to play against Luton, as coach Jurgen Klopp chose him to participate in the match.
Klopp said before the match that there were “positive” negotiations underway to release Diaz’s father.
Luton was on its way to achieving its first victory over Liverpool since 1991, when substitute Dutch winger Tahit Chong scored for them in the 80th minute, using a pass from Issa Kabore.
Despite the draw, Liverpool rose to third place at the expense of Arsenal on goal difference from the latter.
