The "Miracle of Istambul", as some call, is undoubtedly the best final ever of the Champions League.
Milan were heavy favorites an with 3-0 at half-time few could guess what would come next.
Out of nowhere, Liverpool staged a magnificent comeback, with 3 goals in 6 minutes. Gerrard, Smicer and Alonso scored. 6 magical minutes for The Reds.
True, Milan was a better team. True, Milan had more chances to win the match.
But Liverpool showed incredible heart and that goes a long way in a football match. A heroic performance by Jerzy Dudek also helped and Liverpool eventually won in the penalty shootout.
An unlikely champion (considering Liverpool struggled to advance to the knockout stage), but a deserved one. Like all champions, after all.
Man of the match: Jerzy Dudek
