Forza Milan!

I thought Liverpool outplayed the rossoneri tonight, but you can never count out Pippo, the ultimate fox in the box. It was a great move by Ancelotti to start him tonight; I was delighted when Juventus let him go a few years back and I never understood why he was so underutilized in Euro 2004 and the last World Cup.

The second goal, a lovely little through pass from Kaka, was straight playground calcio and Inzaghi’s slow, rolling finish put an excruciating end to a decent match. Rise was a step offside on the final goal, but it was a good no-call and didn’t matter anyhow.
