Brilliant win by the Reds to come back from 3 down to win at the end.

Fitting 5th title for the Reds.

Down three goals at halftime, it looked like Liverpool's 21-year wait for a fifth European Cup success would never end.

Amazingly, the end came just over an hour later.

Liverpool scored three second-half goals in seven minutes to overcome the deficit and draw 3-3 with AC Milan before winning 3-2 on penalties.

"We were massive underdogs at the beginning of the competition and I'll put my hands up say and I didn't think we were going to go all the way," said Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, whose team knocked out Italian and Premier League champions Juventus and Chelsea to reach the final.

"But, as you can see tonight, we are never beaten."

Andriy Shevchenko, whose shootout spot kick clinched Milan's sixth title two years ago, failed this time, giving the English team the title in a match that started Wednesday and finished in the early minutes of Thursday morning.

In the highest scoring final since Benfica beat Real Madrid 5-3 in 1962, Liverpool became the first team to win the trophy after trailing 3-0.

It was a fantastic game, I really thought Liverpool would be down and out at half-time...was feeling pretty bleak, considering how hard they worked leading to the finals. I didn't expect much in the second half, but my word, that fantastic goal by Gerrard really set the stadium on fire! :D

One of the most exciting European finals I've seen, even down to the penalties :)
