Whoa! Liverpool did it again!
While not exactly another Istanbul, Liverpool had to come back from behind (1-0, 2-0, 2-1) to draw level at 3-3 in injury time with an awesome 30-yard drive from Captain Gerrard!
No goals scored in extra-time, taking the game to penalty shoot-out! Reina saved three penalties to snatch the FA Cup for Liverpool!
Some noable quotes:
I said to Steven at the end, “I thought you would
have saved those [goals] for the World Cup!”
– Alan Pardew, West Ham maanger
‘Today was not good for the heart so we should try to win things
– Rafa Benitez, Liverpool manager
In the past, I’ve commented the Liverpool team lack the mental strength to win things. Now I can see a very different team out there. A team that knows even when things are not going smoothly for them (like trailing 2-3 in a Cup Final with only minutes to go), they still continue to play on to create openings….
Well done, lads. Let’s wish for an even better season next!
You Never Walk Alone…
