Liverpool hoisted the Champions League trophy after topping Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in Madrid. The game started in controversial fashion, but holding an early lead, the Reds defended strongly and kept the Spurs attack locked down all match.
After the game, the Reds were able to lift the trophy with captain Jordan Henderson leading the charge. He walked the Cup onto the stage and led the celebration as the pyrotechnics stamped the triumphant moment in the background. Goalkeeper Alisson, with his green goalkeeping kit nowhere to be found, then slipped in front on the edge of the podium and got a seat front-and-center.
With the silverware donned and the Cup hoisted, the team decided to give manager Jurgen Klopp the celebration he deserved after finally winning his first Champions League title.
With the team celebrating in jubilation, the crowd decided to get into the act with a stadium-wide rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone while the players stood on the podium.
Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hide his excitement after the match, taking a relatively more explicit song and transforming it into his own to celebrate the sixth European title in the club’s history. “Let’s talk about six, baby.”
Back in England, there was celebrating too as the city of Liverpool erupted as Divock Origi delivered the goal that put the game to bed.
Across the pond in New York, Liverpool fans celebrated just as hard as they gathered to watch the game.
Fans outside the Wanda Metropolitana stadium in Madrid took to the streets to celebrate the win, with smoke and other pyrotechnics to help accentuate the jubilation.
