So Liverpool played Luton Town in FA cup match this Saturday. They were losing 3-1, a near insurmountable gap in soccer, when, just as they did last year against AC Milan in the most amazing comeback of all time, they came back to win the match 5-3.

What is also amazing is that the Liverpoolian spaniard Xabi Alonso scored the fifth goal from his own half of the field- a 60 yard shot.

What is even more amazing that than that is the fact that at the beginning of the season a Liverpool fan had bet 200 pounds that Xabi would score a goal from his own half at least once during the season:
A Liverpool fan has won 25,000 pounds ($43,880) after betting that midfielder Xabi Alonso would score from his own half this season, British media reported on Monday.

Gerrard has sold me on Liverpool. I like just about everything about his game.
