History in the making

Thursday night will live long in the memories of Liverpool fans everywhere.

Trailing Borussia Dortmund with less than a half hour to go and needing three goals to make it through to the Europa League semi-finals, the Reds mounted an incredible comeback and won the game.

Things looked bad for Jurgen Klopp’s men against his former team early on, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the Germans up 2-0 in the first ten minutes.

The home side went into half-time knowing they needed a miracle to have any chance of winning, and Klopp stepped forward to inspire his team.

During a post-match interview, Liverpool’s first goalscorer on the night Divock Origi revealed the inspirational words Klopp shared during his half-time team talk, calling on his players to create a moment worth telling their grandchildren about.

And, well, we don’t need to tell you that it worked.
