Item Description

The Date : May 13th 2006 The Place : The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff The Event : The 125th FA Cup Final. Could Liverpool win the FA Cup for the seventh time in their history? Last season’s heroic Champions League victory has gone down in football folklore as the greatest comeback of all time. Rafa Benitez’s team never seem to know when they are beaten, and that indefatigable spirit was called upon again as opponents West Ham United raced to a 2-0 lead inside half an hour through a Carragher own goal and a smartly taken chance by Ashton after a Reina fumble. As in Istanbul, it was Liverpool’s Captain who inspired the team to an improbable comeback; a superb cross found Cisse behind the West Ham defence and Liverpool were back in the game as half-time arrived. Within a minute of the restart West Ham had a great chance to restore their two goal lead when Reina denied both Harewood and Benayoun in quick succession. Undeterred, Liverpool continued to look for the equaliser and in the 54th minute Gerrard pounced on a Crouch knock-down to emphatically level for Liverpool. Still the drama wasn’t over. Konchesky put over a hopeful cross that looped over the Liverpool keeper to make it 3-2 to West Ham. As four minutes of injury time was announced, could anything deny West Ham a glory that they’d waited 26 long years for? The answer was most definitely yes as the ball fell to an unmarked Gerrard 35 yards out. From there, Captain Fantastic hit an unerring pile driver and delivered possibly the greatest goal ever scored in an Fa Cup FInal 3-3. Extra time failed to split the weary teams, and so to the dreaded penalty shoot-out. With Jose Reina in goal for Liverpool and memories of Istanbul flooding back, the Reds looked far more confident than West ham, and so it proved. Spot kicks from Hamman, Gerrard and Riise saw Liverpool victorious and the Cup was finally on its way back to Merceyside…
