Liverpool hoping its FA Cup runneth over

Liverpool’s Andy Carroll is never going to be worth the £35 million the team paid for him, but for one day at least it sure felt like it.

Carroll’s header at the 87 minute mark helped put Liverpool into its first FA Cup final since 2006 as the Reds beat Everton at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

“I’ve had some criticism but I kept on going and to get the winner here is a great feeling,” Carroll said in published reports. “I had a few chances and I probably should have scored earlier but I had to wait until the end. It’s the best feeling ever. We worked hard and getting a goal at the end there was great.

“I believed in myself every day and I got my chance here. I’ve started two games and scored two goals, so it’s great.”

Liverpool will face the winner of Sunday’s match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in next month’s final.
