6 minutes

Even the staunchest Liverpool supporter could not have imagined Liverpool overturning a 3-0 deficit, certainly not in a span of 6 minutes. It was a surreal experience for everyone who witnessed it and certainly for the 22 men on the pitch. It was like watching a staged drama but one where even the actors were oblivious of the script and guided by an external force. The goals did not occur due to sublime(though definitely good) football skills or atrocious defending or fortuitous deflections, which is what makes them remarkable. The third goal had the most dramatic touch to it, not just because it tied the game. Xavi Alonso takes a good penalty kick; Dida pulls off a decent save but Xavi beats both Dida and the defender to put the ball into the net on the rebound.
Dudek's double save of Shevchenko's shots in the 117th minute of the game was yet another surreal moment of the game. Dudek's face said it all - he had absolutely no clue how his body parts came in between Sheva's shots and the goal. His impish grin seemed to acknowledge the mysterious force dictating the game.
Before the penalty shoot out, I told my friends who were watching the game with me that Liverpool will win it although Milan had arguably the better shooters and definitely the better goal keeper. I also said aloud that if there was one player who least deserved to miss a penalty shot, it was Sheva and yet the "script" dictates that he will miss it. We all know what happened.

transcripts are also available. This little known secret has been
kept quiet for years. The opportunity exists due to a legal loophole
allowing some established colleges to award degrees at their discretion.

be surprised to see this loophole closed very soon.
