Liverpool defender Kostas Tsimikas wrote himself into Anfield and FA Cup folklore after he kept his nerve from the spot to keep alive Jurgen Klopp’s impossible dream.

Nothing could prise this same duo apart in the Carabao Cup three months ago and it was a similar story at Wembley as fortunes ebbed and flowed.

The Greek international finally separated these two teams by firing home the winning penalty in the shoot-out after 120 minutes’ of enthralling entertainment as the Reds’ quadruple hung in the balance.

They had maintained their cool in the Carabao Cup - winning 11-10 - but they did not need as many attempts this time out to land the second leg of their historic trophy bid.

Diaz - who must hold the record for the most shots on goal in an FA Cup final - took a pass from Sadio Mane and clattered a drive against the upright.

In fact, Liverpool were the beneficiaries when they last won the famous old pot 16 years ago when the defeated West Ham in similar fashion at the Millennium Stadium.

And what a finale it was for Alisson and Tsimikas.
