The New Kings of Europe, Milan!

In a game that reminded more of a preliminary group meeting, A.C. Milan easily defeated Liverpool in the 2007 Champions League Final. The final score was 2:1 and even though that the scoreline does not represent Milan's overpowering of Liverpool but Milan had the game initiative throughout the whole game. Milan took the lead in the first half when Pirlo's free-kick was deflected into the goal by Pipo Inzaghi. The second half was a little boring to watch as Milan was controlling the middle of the field. In the 82nd minute Inzaghi made it 2:0. Liverpool responded with one goal in the 87th minute when Dirk Kuyt beat Dida with a beautiful header. But, it was a little too late and Milan got their revenge from the 2005 Champions league final. I must say that I was a little disappointed in both sides as neither Milan, nor Liverpool came out ready to play for the fans. Maybe all the players got drunk the night before the match (haha). Congratulations to A.C. Milan but hopefully we watch a more attractive final next year.
