It was the six minutes that shook the world. It was the six minutes that turned sporting logic on its head, these six minutes showed that you should never give up. A familiar exhortation will go around Liverpool players or supporters when they walk through a storm. “Remember Istanbul.’’ Ancelotti’s side were leading 3-0 at half-time and it could have been more.

Milan’s spirit was broken and they folded completely in the penalty shoot-out. The six minutes that shook Milan’s world made Liverpool once again the centre of the football universe.
