Sweet Revenge…at last

Today was the Champions League final between AC Milan and Liverpool. After the defeat in 2005, Milan was back with a vengeance this year breaking Man Utd in the home game by 3-0 and now defeating Liverpool 2-1. The game did not start well for Milan in the first half. It was obvious Liverpool dominated that half by cutting the majority of the balls. I have to say Pennant from Liverpool closed off his side of the pitch; out manneuvring the Milan defence and creating major opportunities for Gerrard and Zenden, but without any results.
Milan finally scores after a fluke deflection by Inzaghi close to the end of the first half. The second half was completely different though, Milan patched up their defence, and started taking more control of the game as they reduced the errors in the defense – the horrible passes were a big problem in the first half. Inzaghi finally scores a real goal in the second half making a fool out of Reina as he danced around him. Towards the end of the match, Liverpool scores their first – but who cares, AC came out victorious and clearly the champs of Europe.
For all Liverpool’s huffing and puffing there was no end product
