Divock Origi Seals Liverpool's Champions League Crown

Divock Origi Seals Liverpool's Champions League Crown

An early Mo Salah penalty and a late Divock Origi drive earned a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur that crowned Liverpool European champions for the sixth time - a figure outranked only by AC Milan (seven) and Real Madrid (13).

Goals from Mohamed Salah - from the penalty spot inside two minutes - and Divock Origi put Liverpool's name on the trophy.

GK Alisson, 8 - A odd game for the Brazilian global, who was largely redundant for the first 75 minutes before needing to make a flurry of saves.

But in the 85th minute, a rare Liverpool break resulted in the ball falling to Origi, who coolly slotted it across Hugo Lloris into the bottom corner.

Turner Sports, which owns Bleacher Report and is the American television rights holder to the Champions League, and has used various international-based combinations for calling the games this season. Even though he had previously said he was not anxious about his poor record in finals.

"I am so happy for the boys all these people, and my family", he said.

The 51-year-old Klopp has excelled at inspiring a furious, all-out-attacking mentality at Liverpool that he brought with him from Dortmund.

In a final that rarely touched the heights of the blockbuster semi-finals that made this an all-Premier League showpiece, Spurs had chances but were denied by Liverpool keeper Alisson, who saved well from Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Christian Eriksen. "We are going to think we have just won the European Cup".

"Did you ever see a team like this, fighting with no fuel in the tank?"

It was seventh time lucky for Jurgen Klopp, who finally ended his miserable record in finals.

"We need to feel very proud of all our efforts, how we fight to get to this final", he added.
