The Anfield roar on a European night had been dormant for a few years but it exploded back into life tonight as a late Dejan Lovren header completed a sensational Liverpool comeback and sent them into the Europa League semi-final.

Borussia Dortmund led the home side 2-0 at half time, which left Liverpool needing three goals to progress, something that occurred again later on in the second half after Marco Reus put the Germans 3-1 up.

"The coach said that we had to create a moment that we could tell our children or grandchildren," Origi said.
