AC Milan 2 - Liverpool 1 - It wasn't a draw!

The result that everybody expected came good last night as AC Milan finally got revenge for their loss to Liverpool two years ago on penalties. Credit to Liverpool for going toe to toe with them and actually playing some decent attacking soccer, but in the end the best team won.

And they did it in style too. Italian teams aren't generally known for their attacking play but Milan's sheer class showed through last night as the awesome Pippo Inzaghi scored twice, once in each half. By the time Liverpool drew one back it was too late.

At the very least it was a watchable game, with fast attacking play from both sides. It doesn't change my views about soccer at all but it was nice to see a couple of teams who actually looked liked they cared whether they won or lost. And that is a scarce thing in top flight European soccer these days.

Yeah I'm not a big soccer fan, but I was able to catch a good portion of this game and really enjoyed it. Between games like this and the World Cup there might be hope for soccer just yet! :)
