Liverpool continue to make heroes during a never-to-be-forgotten season, to accumulate silverware, to hint at something historic. On this occasion, it was the back-up left-back, Kostas Tsimikas, who made the difference, proving that even the more unheralded members of Jürgen Klopp’s squad can be counted on.
Introduced as a substitute in the closing stages of extra time, the Greece international, who joined from Olympiakos in the summer of 2020 for £11.7m, stepped up to take Liverpool’s seventh penalty of the shootout. It was the kick which won the FA Cup.
