Liverpool hold off Stoke

2012-03-18 20:07

Liverpool - Liverpool made it through to the last four of the FA Cup after beating Stoke, last season's losing finalists, 2-1 at Anfield.

Luis Suarez gave the Merseysiders a 23rd minute lead after sending a shot past Thomas Sorensen only for former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch to level three minutes later when the England international headed in a corner.

However, England winger Stewart Downing settled the tie in Liverpool's favour when, after cutting in from the right, he struck a powerful shot past Sorensen in the 57th minute to seal a return to Wembley for the League Cup winners.

    Great report. In fact, you don't even mention FA Cup on your home page. Only one of the biggest soccer competitions in the world.

    Well done.Now for the semi's.The unselfish play by Suarez against Everton should be a lesson to all.Yes the cut off for Europe would be a miracle, but never say impossible.To win the FA Cup would be good.
