On this day: Images from a memorable night for Liverpool in 2004

Anfield Night

Cast your mind back 10 years to a memorable night at Anfield on which Liverpool saw Steven Gerrard secure Champions League progress in dramatic style.

It is one of those nights which will live long in the memory of football supporters everywhere, not just those of a Liverpool persuasion.

This was a joyous sporting occasion in which the Anfield outfit kept their Champions League dreams alive in the most dramatic of fashions against Olympiakos.

Remarkably, 10 years have now passed since an epic encounter saw the Reds remain on course to conquer the continent for a fifth time.

Few could have imagined what lay in store for Liverpool as they settled down to watch a crucial group stage clash which required Rafa Benitez’s side to prevail 1-0 or by two clear goals.

They fell behind to a free-kick from Brazilian legend Rivaldo, but hit back in stunning style to snatch a 3-1 victory.

Steven Gerrard put the icing on the cake with a spectacular strike four minutes from time, sparking wild scenes of celebration on the field, in the stands and in the Sky Sports commentary box from Martin Tyler and Andy Gray

“Gerrraaaard – AAAH YOU BEAUTY.”

Remarkable stuff and an occasion those who witnessed it will never forget.
