KLINSMANN'S ANFIELD DREAM
Dateline: March 12, 1995
Match: FA Cup quarter-final, Liverpool 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2
Seen as one of our great displays of the 1990s and, without question, Jurgen's greatest moment at the club as he left in tears to a standing ovation from the Kop.
Liverpool took the lead via Mark Walters seven minutes before the break but we levelled two minutes later, a picture book goal as Klinsmann teed up Sheringham's fine finish from 18 yards.
We looked stronger but the game looked to be heading for a replay when Klinsmann struck. Sheringham slid in the perfect pass and the German clipped the ball over David James and home.
This is what Jurgen remembered about the day. "When I grew up we had the English league on TV and when I was little, that was the great years of Liverpool. To play them at this famous stadium, Anfield, which has such a big name around the continent and then scoring that goal a minute before the end, winning the game, we'd never won a cup game at Anfield before. The nicest part came afterwards in the dressing rooim when the whole team sang me a song. It was very emotional. I will always remember the Liverpool fans clapping us off the pitch and that is fair play you can only expect in England. Great fans at their stadium and recognising we were just the better team that day. A very special moment."
