We won the cup!!!!!!!
Pepe Reina makes a great save in the shoot out
The cup is ours!
Our Skipper lifts the cup
After pulling back from 2 goals down and scoring an equaliser in stoppage time (scored by none other then Super Stevie Gerrard!) and playing most of extra time with 10 men, we took the game to penalties and thanks to saves from Goalie of the season Jose Reina, we won the game and the FA Cup! Unfortunately being stateside and not having the soccer channel meant that I had to follow the game on the net via live commentary. It seems that I will have to wait for the highlights to be posted on youtube and other video share sites.I can only imagine the atmosphere in the Nairobi bars at the moment.Well at least I have an excuse to have a beer or two tonight! Liverpool rocks and are the comeback Kings! This is a classic qoute by the people from soccernet.com who give live game commentaries on the site... Gerrard cannot contribute to the game anymore and cannot be substituted as Benitez has used all his substitutions.Liverpool are effectively playing with 10 men.Which they are well used to following Djimi Traore's many matches for them. And despite his condition he went on to score one of the penalties during the shoot out!If that isnt heart then I don't know what is! Anyway time to leave, the librarian is wondering why I am jumping up and down like I'm high on crack!
