UEFA Super Cup: we demand the continuation of the holiday!

August 26 2005

August 26 in Monaco at the stadium "Louie Dozem" will compete for the best Champions League Liverpool FC and UEFA Cup is our, Russian CSKA. Never before has any domestic club failed to reach this summit. Yes, there was a magnificent victory of Dynamo Kyiv in 1975, when the people of Kiev with a total score of 3:0 defeated Bayern Munich. But, as it was long ago ....

According to forecasts ubiquitous bookmakers, a favorite of the current confrontation is a "Liverpool" - on his winning bets are accepted on the basis of 1 to 1.9, while at the same time, the gain of Muscovites is estimated at a ratio of 1 to 3.5.

However, sweepstakes, sweepstakes, and in addition to dry calculation is still a time as a sports luck, fortune ... I recall that before the final drawings of both European competition, the favorites were not following their owners ....

Thus, before the Champions League Final in Istanbul, where they met AC Milan and Liverpool, "experts" asserted that the British had absolutely no chance - super strong Italian Grand headed monster - Shevchenko just "make" the field " Liverpool ....

From the first minutes all went to what will be exactly as naprorochili bookies - is already in the first minute of the match Andrea Pirlo's free-kick completed filing, and Paolo Maldini struck the gate, Jerzy Dudek's head.

In the middle of the first half, Andriy Shevchenko gave a magnificent ball to Crespo, who could only get into an empty net - 2:0.

On the 44 th minute of the Argentine made a "double" and carried through the final match of the Champions League to the infamous - 3:0.

But the British did not "floated" in their structure was found a true leader - Steven Gerrard - he otkvital one ball. Further, a gust of Captain infect other players for Liverpool - they ran across the field, as institutions, and Vladimir Shmittser scored from the penalty - 3:2.

What then began on the English stands .... Wail and klyanuvshie fate before the break England fans wail, howl in unison - the players just could not justify the hopes of their fans, who had pinned so many hopes on them ....

Idol of the fans, "Liverpool", the symbol of Liverpool's Steven Gerrard burst into the penalty area, where he was a very rough cost Genaro Gattuso - Penalties. He was taken to perform Xabi Alonso .... Blow ... and Brazilian goalkeeper of AC Milan Dida batter, but uncertainly, before him. And the Spaniard was able to correct his mistake in finishing - 3:3.

Extra time, despite an abundance of moments, to no avail. The fate of the magnificent Cup was solved in a penalty shootout. The last, decisive penalty took to beat Andriy Shevchenko, who has brought his hit "Milan", the title winner of the Champions League. But here, fortune turned away from the Ukrainian - his blow fell in the Polish goalkeeper for Liverpool Jerzy Dudek.

All the British won, despite all the pre-match predictions and assurances. Bookmakers in shock - they almost ruined.

Earlier "pig" omnipresent and omniscient "Kings tote" planted CSKA Moscow.

Before a fantastic finale of the UEFA Cup was widely considered a favorite of the Lisbon Sporting - they say, stars and more, and previous European merit .... And most importantly - the game was held in Lisbon, the home arena of rival army. But where our did not disappear - an unfortunate, but the number of pitiful handful of army of fans perekrikivala full to overflowing scored Portuguese stadium.
It should be noted that at the very beginning of the match Sporting's almost managed to embarrass the players of CSKA.

and 29 th minute Rogerio scored a big hit at the gate Igor Akinfeev ball. Suspicion crept in - is it all .... Especially in the field was virtually no visible CSKA players, it reigned Portuguese .... Adjournment.

No matter how much they asked Valery Gazzayev, then what he said then ward - he just smiled slyly at his mustache and went to answer, but, nevertheless, after the words of the army team just started to flutter in the field.

A wonderful ball bounce off the ground scoring Alexei Berezutsky - 1:1. Hope dawned.
Next, CSKA Moscow an opportunity to score in the counterattack - Carvalho gorgeous Paz brought to the gates of the young Yuri Zhirkov - that does not just scoring, he mockingly katnul ball between the legs of goalkeeper celebrated 2:1. Something that they were afraid even to hope, it was so close.

Further, after acute attack "Sporting", Igor Akinfeev did not long hold the ball and sent it directly to Carvalho, who in turn gave it to fellow Wagner Lava - the katnul ball past goalkeeper zazevavshegosya. 3:1. Victory! Great victory!

Mad with happiness Russian fans rushed onto the streets of cities. It was Russian, because in that magic, fairy-tale evening for CSKA ached all over Russia.

It was amusing to watch broadcast government meetings on the following day, when normally harsh statesmen are not ashamed of television cameras, several-minute standing ovation that victory.

Maybe tomorrow will be walking our streets, and to celebrate the people will once again be shouting "We - the champions!". Because somehow neradostno the soul is, when we remembered our most recent football "success": "brilliant" game of the Russian team, which lost virtually all chance of getting to the World Cup in Germany, the defeat Lokomotiv in the game with no rending stars from heaven, "Rapid" ....

Maybe even this time all of us, the fans will be able to proudly say: "Russia - the champion!".
