Having gone through the penalty shootout at 2008 UEFA Champions League Final I was informed by students that the AC Milan vs Liverpool final in 2005 was another penalty shootout worth looking at. As well as being a tremendous comeback by Liverpool it was interesting to observe how the penalty shootout progressed.
I proceeded to go through each penalty for AC Milan and Liverpool and wrote on the board the following:
*Kicker – shot NS C OS
*GK – dived NS OS
Like the Man Utd v Chelsea game there were some similarities regarding strategy. Worth a look.
