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.

Here’s how they reacted.


Before the game…


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
