Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are only just managing to shake off their hangovers and it seems our landlord is hell-bent on making sure they do not forget their first penalty shootout defeat in a European competition.
The Reds were back in Istanbul a decade on from their Champions League final heroics and this time it was simply not meant to be.
After manager Brendan Rodgers took off Mario Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge, the Reds had to face penalties without the duo – and it was all going so well until summer signing Dejan Lovren stepped up.
In fact, his effort was so bad that a couple of our punters quip we would have been better off seeing the ‘Oops, technical error’ sign on the screen ITV4 put up right before the penalties began!
Look away pronto Liverpool fans!
Liverpool fans. Do you blame Lovren or were you impressed he actually volunteered to take a penalty unlike Raheem Sterling? Let us know your thoughts below.
