Liverpool Bows Out In Athens

The European Champions League championship was won by AC Milan in Athens today, as Liverpool lost, 2-1. AC Milan avenged the loss they suffered at the hands of Liverpool two years ago in Turkey. That was the incredible night when Liverpool was down, 3-0 and came all the way back to tie before winning the title on penalty kicks.

It wasn't to be, as AC Milan led 1-0 at halftime, and then 2-0, both on goals by Filippo Inzaghi. Dirk Kuyt got the Liverpool goal in the 88th minute and it looked like Liverpool might stage an incredible comeback, but it was not meant to be.

Congratulations to AC Milan on their title.

It was a nice run for Liverpool all the way to the title game. You did the Liverpool fans from Merseyside and around the world proud, guys.
