2001 Football League Cup Final


2001 Football League Cup Final

The 2001 Worthington Cup Final was a football match played between Liverpool and Birmingham City at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff on Sunday 25 February 2001. Liverpool won the match 5-4 on penalties after 90 minutes of normal time and 30 minutes of extra time could not split the two sides.

Liverpool opened the scoring with a goal from Robbie Fowler in the 30th minute and appeared to be heading for a win in normal time until Birmingham equalised in injury-time with a penalty from Darren Purse, after Martin O'Connor was brought down by Stéphane Henchoz.

The victory was Liverpool's first major trophy in 6 years, since winning the same competition in 1995.
