Relive every kick of the 2006 FA Cup Final where favourites Liverpool, led by
Captain Marvel Steven Gerrard, took on underdogs West Ham who, under the astute
stewardship of Alan Pardew belied their Premier League new-boy status to mix it
with the best....
Being no strangers to comeback performances, that Istanbul spirit was called upon again in the 2006 FA Cup Final as West Ham raced to a 2-0 lead. It was the captain that inspired the team again, as Gerrard's superb cross found Cisse - Liverpool were back in the game! The Reds continued to look for the equaliser and found it as Gerrard pounced on a Crouch knock-down to level it.
The drama continued as Konchesky delivered a hopeful cross that looped in to restore the opposition's lead but entering injury time Gerrard rocketed home one of the best goals ever scored in the competition to take the final to Extra Time. Inevitably the match went to a dreaded penalty shootout but with Reina in goal and memories of Istanbul Liverpool flooding back, it was Liverpool that looked the most confident. History was made as strikes from Hamman, Gerrard and Riise saw the Cup return to Anfield!
