Hail the Champions

Liverpool are the champions of Europe, having defeated AC Milan in a remarkable match. Milan were up 3-0 at the half. If there is any team in Europe one would bet on to hold that lead, it’s Milan. Yet in 15 minutes the lead had vanished. Then, after an hour of deadlock, Liverpool won the penalty kick shoot-out. Their hot and cold goalkeeper Jerzey Dudek saved two penalties, just as he had saved the match minutes before with two brilliant saves.
I can’t say that I was cheering Liverpool on, but let’s give them their due. At least I can say that Everton finished ahead of the European champions.
As a result of finishing behind Everton, Liverpool did not qualify for next year’s European championship competition. Let’s hope that the powers-that-be will allow them to defend their crown, but not by taking Everton’s spot.
