Kane starts for Tottenham in Champions League final

If you are a Liverpool fan, how can you not love him? Then again, no one again can deny the touch of class Kane brings to the table, just by his inclusion in the starting eleven.

"You have a goalkeeper who makes hard things look easy", Klopp said.

Tottenham had prepared intensely for three weeks for the biggest game in the club's history, analyzed every minute detail and every possible outcome.

Liverpool's Divock Origi became only the second Belgium player to score in a Champions League/European Cup final after Yannick Carrasco for Atletico vs Real Madrid in 2016; Origi has scored with all three of his shots in the CL this season.

It was seventh time lucky for Jurgen Klopp, who finally ended his miserable record in finals.

Tottenham had more of the possession in an otherwise disjointed first half but couldn't make the final ball count, and Liverpool went closest to doubling their lead through full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson, both inches away with long-range efforts.

"I am so happy for the boys all these people, and my family", he said.

Victory against Tottenham came six years after Dortmund was beaten by Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

"It's the best night of my life, professional-wise".

"Normally 20 minutes after the game I am half drunk, but now I have only had water!"

Captain Jordan Henderson, fighting back tears, said: "Without the manager this is impossible. He was the top scorer for his team and for English football...until I came!" I feel so proud, a little bit unlucky.

No tears of pain this time, just redemption for Mohamed Salah.

'But we shouldn't forget what we've achieved this season, how we got to this stage.

Divock Origi had to accept a place back on the bench despite producing two goals while deputizing for the injured Salah last month.
