After a poor first effort, Russo nets one with…a back heel nutmeg?!?!?
Considering that Popp walked off during the warm up, the German performance is all the more remarkable.The second-place award is a humiliation that should be done away with. I don’t blame the Germans for being gutted, that was a 120 minute toe to toe slugfest and they looked like better value for the win after their goal, for a time. They didn’t quite have the composure down the stretch; home field probably made the difference.
Game reports & some Twitter outrage make it seem the Reds benefitted from some pretty bad ref mistakes.Liverpool marked their return to the top flight by knocking off defending WSL champs Chelsea 2-1. All 3 goals came from the spot.
