I could just be lazy here and say ‘see day 06‘. A holiday is practically an event so I have already done this post before. But no, in the spirit of things I will digress. Its time for me to to become the crazy football supporter (that’s soccer for those of you across the water in America, and also for those of you down the road who associate the word football with Gaelic, our national game here in Ireland) But yes I have a confession to make. ‘My name is Keelan and I’m a Liverpool supporter’. And so bearing that in mind the certain event that I am about to mention is an obvious one. The Champions League final 2005 (which is funny seeing as I was on said holiday mentioned in the Day 06 post when the match was on) But back to the match. For those of you on the know, I don’t need to say that the final was more than an exciting affair. But for the rest of you let me condense that great night in Istanbul into a few lines.
So Liverpool were the Underdogs and conceded three goals to AC Milan by the half time break. And so in the second half Liverpool came and orchestrated what is being dubbed as ‘The miracle of Istanbul’. They scored three goals and managed to bring the game into extra time and a subsequent penalty shoot-out. And I’m sure you know what came next. Liverpool won the shootout and thus won the Final.
And now for those of you who would like to know more or just relive that moment through song then by all means click play on the video below. The song is a special remix of Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire. The song incorporates commentary soundbites from the key moments of the game. So I think that s everything covered.
