In a historic sign by Liverpool FC, coach Jurgen Klopp and a number of players were keen to fulfill the dream of a child from the Reds fans to participate in the moments of receiving the English League Cup in the main cabin of the match stadium.
The Liverpool team crowned the English League Cup after achieving a difficult victory at the expense of Chelsea, by penalty kicks, 11-10, in the match that was held on Sunday evening at Wembley Stadium in the English capital, London.
The child was present after a request from his father to fulfill his son’s dream, who then participated in the coronation and received the cup with the players before he celebrated with the Brazilian Alison Becker and raised it high before leaving the cabin.
The players received the League Cup amid great joy, in which the Egyptian international Mohamed Salah participated, who managed to score the penalty kick that was available to him at the end of the match.
The Reds won the League Cup on 8 previous times, the last of which was in the 2011-2012 season, and finished runner-up on 4 occasions.
It is noteworthy that Chelsea qualified for the final match of the League Cup after defeating Tottenham in the semi-finals, with a score of three goals to zero in the two matches.
While Liverpool advanced to the final after achieving a big victory over Arsenal, with a score of two goals without a response, in the second leg of the semi-final, after the first leg ended in a goalless draw.
Liverpool became the largest club in winning the Carabao Cup with 9 titles, after disengaging with second-placed Manchester City, who had previously managed to win eight titles in its history.
The two teams exchanged attacks in the ninety minutes of the match, but they failed to find the net, so the match went to the extra time, which was dominated by a negative tie as well, to resort to penalty kicks, which witnessed a marathon that ended with the replacement goalkeeper Kepa wasting the last kick.
Joel Matip scored a goal for Liverpool, but the referee canceled it after referring to the video technology, in the 67th minute of the match for offside and a foul on Virgil van Dijk.
Romelu Lukaku also scored a goal for the Blues in the 98th minute of the match, but it was also canceled due to offside, the same with Haveritz’s goal in the 110th minute of the match.
Senegalese Sadio Mane missed a sure chance to score in the 30th minute of the match, which was saved by his compatriot Mendy with great skill.
Mason Mount missed a goal for Chelsea after hitting the ball into the Liverpool post in the 49th minute of the match.
