This was the match everyone was dying to see. In Singapore, the match was covered "Live" at Clarke Quay by Joe Morrison, with Peter Reid and Nigel as guests. I was out shopping but returned just in the nick of time to catch it at home.
Man Utd started brightly when Park JS was brought down by keeper Reina midway through the 1st half. Referee Alan Wiley pointed to the spot and
Ronaldo converted the spotkick. Other than this, the home team were terrible in their passing and lack of imagination. Almost everyone was guilty of this,especially so were Rooney, O'Shea, Anderson and Carrick.
Towards the end of the half, a long punt of the ball upfield found Torres and Vidic chasing for it. Vidic trying to be clever tried to control with his chest but Torres upstaged him and ran on to sidefoot home. Score 1-1.
A few minutes later, it became worse for United as Steven Gerard was hauled down by Patrick Evra in the box. Gerard cooly slotted home the penalty. 2-1 Liverpool!
The Ref, thinking he was the last defender, gave him a Red card! From the freekick taken by Aurellio, it went in beautifully at the top corner. Keeper Van Der Sar did not even move! Score: 1-3 Liverpool.
