Liverpool complete stunning comeback


Liverpool are the best in Europe once again!! Posted by Hello
Match report here

YES!!!! Liverpool completed an unbelievable comeback in the UEFA champions league finals against AC Milan after being 3-0 down at half time. Strikes from Paulo Maldini, 2 from Hernan Crespo had left both the Liverpool players and their fans in tatters. In an inspired comeback during the second half, Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso brought the game back to level terms. When the scores remained tied even after extra time, the game went into penalty shoot-out. The hero of the day was Liverpool goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek. Saving 2 crucial spot kicks from Andrei Shevchenko and Pirlo, Dudek sealed victory and sent the fans into raptures.

The only sad part - No power at my home during the entire night yesterday that left me waiting for my friend's SMS to know the progress!!!! FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK! Anyway, must make sure I watch one of the hundreds of replays on ESPN!

Celebration time!!!! - "You will never walk alone!"
