Liverpool Are The Champions of Europe

Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi scored the decisive two goals in an otherwise fairly forgettable Champions League final on Saturday to ensure Liverpool become champions of Europe. 

It was 23 seconds on the clock that a Moussa Sissoko handball gave away a penalty. It took Salah another 91 seconds to collect the ball, place it on the spot and then he aimed his shot through the middle to hit the net. 

And then, in the eighty-seventh minute, substitute Divock Origi, who had replaced Roberto Firmino, swung his left foot at the ball and sealed victory with a low shot. 

Yes, finally, Liverpool won a trophy in Madrid, Spain – even if the Reds know all too well that they could have played a lot better. 

When Jordan Henderson lifted the trophy to the skies it meant Liverpool have now won the title on six occasions – behind only AC Milan (7) and Real Madrid (13). 

The other fact to savor is that we had won it more times than the other EPL clubs put together.

Jurgen Klopp ends a run of six losing finals to join the club of Anfield legends. 

Anyway, what's really important is that Liverpool got the job done. 

Geez, I am so proud to be a Red fan!
