CARROLL’S GOAL PUTS LIVERPOOL INTO FA CUP FINAL

Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool showed great pride, commitment and dogged determination to win this FA Cup semi-final against Everton at the new Wembley Stadium yesterday.
Faced with David Moyes’ pirihana’s, Liverpool had it all to do.

But do it they did, after a mix-up in defence between Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger, Everton’s Nicoli Jelavic pounced to score for Everton on 24 mins.

Everton were far from being the dominant team in the half, yet they gained an early advantage leading into half-time.

Liverpool obviously had a re-think at the interval and came out with all guns blazing, pressurising Everton at every ball.

Luis Suarez took advantage of a poor Distin back-pass and pounced on it to level the tie 1-1 on 62 mins.

Liverpool continued to dominate the game at the new Wembley and the pressure finally paid off when Andy Carroll headed home a great Bellamy free-kick on 87 mins to earn Liverpool a deserved place in the FA Cup Final on May 5 against  Chelsea.
