Goal Analysis: Robbie Fowler – Liverpool Legends 3-2 AC Milan Legends 23/3/2019

Still got it.

Sami Hyypia strides forward on the ball and passes out to Glen Johnson on the right, continuing forward to drag Massimo Ambrosini into the backline.

Andrea Pirlo steps in front of Robbie Fowler to block the pass into his feet, but Dirk Kuyt makes a run across to make himself available, forcing Kakha Kaladze to get close as Alessandro Costacurta lets him go. Costacurta had two men to track at the far post – Cafu had been able to sprint up and down the touchline deep into his thirties but getting back so fast is a bit more difficult at 48 – and opted to mark Kuyt, as he was in the more dangerous central position. However with Kuyt making a run away he take some steps back to defend against Luis Garcia, who’s making a run inside anyway.
