John Arne Riise knows a thing or two about playing in finals. He starred in both the 2005 and 2007 Champions League finals, as well as a whole host of domestic deciders.
He also knows a thing or two about what it takes to get to finals; a combination of belief on the pitch, quality in the dugout, and support from the stands.
His tweet about tonight’s event encapsulates all that perfectly:
Man of the match? No no, it’s Men of the match: the whole team! But I give it to whole of Anfield! Unreal support!!

If you were at Anfield tonight we salute you and thank you. It was undoubtedly your support and your passion that gave all our players that extra ten percent that was the difference. We know they would say the same thing.
Now – onwards to Switzerland!
