They've Done It! Liverpool Reach Champions League Final As Origi And Wijnaldum Score Twice Each In Stunning Comeback Against Barca

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona (4-3 agg): Reds complete amazing comeback to reach Champions
LIVERPOOL 4-0 BARCELONA (agg 4-3) - MARTIN SAMUEL AT ANFIELD: The greatest team in Europe stopped, but a 20-year-old from West Derby in Merseyside was still thinking. Trent Alexander-Arnold sold Barcelona the dummy that resonated across the globe and sent Liverpool to another Champions League final. What a brain, what audacity. 

Divock Origi, who has scored some of the most important goals in the history of this club, while being its fifth choice striker, got the winner but Alexander-Arnold was the evil genius behind.  He walked over to the ball by the corner flag, seemed to change his mind about taking, and stepped away. Barcelona, at that moment, relaxed, regrouped, some even turned their backs. Alexander-Arnold switched direction with a greyhound’s speed and whipped it on. Origi met it first time and Barcelona’s stood baffled. That old one? How could they be so foolish? How could they be so…out?
