    Hello
    Please could you help and correct this sentence?
    Find the mistake and correct it:
    Mohammad Salah became the first player achieving 28 goals in 38 games.
    Thank you in advance.

    Hello
    Thank you dear gerondif
    Dear gerondif I want you review my answers
    This sentence of course is not mine, but a friend in Facebook sent it.
    He said "achieving" is not correct to use in sports for example achieving goals.
    Yes, we say scoring goals >>>> I know
    ------
    Mohammad Salah became the first player achieving 32 goals in 38 games. ( sentence source)
    Of course the problem is within the gerund " achieving" ; we either need to use a verb or rephrasing the whole sentence.

    corrections:
    1- Achieving 32 goals in 38 games, Mohammad Salah became\ has become the first player.
    2- Mohammad Salah, who scored 32 goals in 38 games, became \ has become the first player.
    3- scoring 32 goals in 38 games, Mohammad Salah became the first player.
    4- After achieving 32 goals in 38 games, Mohammad Salah became the first player.

    Hello
    I would say :
    Mohammad Salah became the first player ( who managed )to score 28 goals in 38 games.
    Mohammad Salah became the first player who succeeded in scoring 28 goals in 38 games.

    Hello
    I think you gerondif changed the last example ....

    Here your original message I picked to my page as you typed :
    11-09-2018 at 19:25:16 (D | E)
    Hello
    I would say :
    Mohammad Salah became the first player ( who managed )to score 28 goals in 38 games.
    Mohammad Salah became the first player who succeeded in achieving 28 goals in 38 games.

    ----
    Does your sentence the last one not correct or cannot be used?
    I mean cannot use achieve as I suggested in my four suggestions?
