Jordan Henderson has provided a unique insight into the belief and commitment which miraculously swept Liverpool into the Champions League final. Liverpool skipper Henderson revealed he was barely able to walk after a cynical stamp from Barcelona's Clement Lenglet early in the epic semi-final.

At half-time, there were real fears he would not be able to continue, but the midfielder explained that nothing was going to deny him the best night of his life. "I was struggling when I got a whack on the knee, it was dead," he said. "The doctors said just keep it moving. I managed to get to half-time and I had some treatment, painkillers, all that stuff, which helped."
