Xabi Alonso – The World Cup Final is even better than Liverpool beating Milan in the Champions League Final
The ex-Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is so excited about being in the World Cup final, and believes that it will even be a better experience than when Liverpool came from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan in the Champions League Final in Istanbul a few years ago. He plays for Real Madrid now, but there is nothing that could possibly match tonights game.
“Winning the World Cup would be even better than winning the Champions League in what will probably always be the greatest final ever,” said Alonso.
“I never thought I would get the chance to do something even more special that what Liverpool achieved in 2005.
“The drama of Istanbul on the pitch was like the most unbelievable dream. On the pitch we somehow came back from the dead to beat a team with incredible talent.
“Off the pitch, there were the Liverpool fans refusing to give up even though we were three goals down. There was my goal, fantastic saves from Jerzy Dudek. If you didn’t see it with your own eyes you wouldn’t believe it.
“But winning the World Cup – that is an achievement that so few players can make.
“Some of the best players the game has known never got a chance like this, when you can spell your name in history.”
