There were thousands of jubilant supporters as Sadio Mane extended Liverpool’s lead to 3-0 at Wembley and our bench was amongst the happiest.
All the players on the pitch ran to celebrate with our No.10 but, thanks to Liverpool’s ‘Inside’ series on their YouTube channel, cameras soon turned to our bench.
Joel Matip was clapping his hands as Kostas Tsimikas jumped up and hugged James Milner and then pumped both his hands, shouting: “Come on!”.

Next you can see Curtis Jones behind the pair, as he mouths: “Wow!” and Bobby Firmino celebrating by high-fiving the coaching staff.
Soon after, Jordan Henderson returns to the bench from his warm-up and his exhalation shows how impressed he was with the first half performance too.
Nothing better than seeing an excited bench as it shows the team spirit within a squad, we’ve got it in bucket loads!
