Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso scored the winning goal for Spain against the hosts South Africa in extra-time in the 3rd place play-off match today in Johannesburg.
Liverpool’s play maker has surely added another few million to his asking price with his displays in the tournament and he capped it all off with a great free kick from way out on the left-hand side of the pitch to win the match.
As I have said many times before on this site, I don’t want Alonso to leave Liverpool despite Real Madrid’s continued interest in him.
Rafa Benitez wants to keep him as well, according to various statements in the press and it is vitally important that we keep our best players to go and win the title next season.
