Goals from Harry Kewell and Michael Owen gave the veteran Reds hope going into the break, before a brace of penalties from Roberto Carlos, as well as goals from Jose Emilio Amavisca and Ivan Perez secured the spoils for Los Meringues.

An enjoyable affair all-round, Liverpool’s Legends side kept up the spirit of the game—with all proceeds going to charity, this was a light-hearted run-out featuring some high-profile names.

And after…

“The crowd were fantastic and we played superbly in the first half but when they got the penalty just before half-time you knew you were at Real Madrid.

“It’s great for the lads though and we can’t wait for the return leg at Anfield.”
Ian Rush

“It was a brilliant occasion but I’m upset about the result because you want to win. I want to get a goal every time I’m out there because I’m greedy.”
Robbie Fowler

“I just want to go to sleep; I’m so tired. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to play in a game like this.

“I had to give everything so I’d get asked to come to the next one.

“We were never going to win the game. The refereeing was a bit questionable!”
Jason McAteer
