News From Liverpool: Liverpool fans hail “cult hero” Kostas Tsimikas as Lucas Leiva backs new No. 21

With over two hours of football played in the scorching London heat, the FA Cup final went to a penalty shootout the second one this season between Liverpool and Chelsea.

And just like in the League Cup in February, it was the Reds who emerged triumphant, this time in more conventional circumstances as they won 6-5 on spot-kicks.

Though Edouard Mendy denied Sadio Mane to cancel out an early Cesar Azpilicueta miss, Alisson dived the right way to keep out Mason Mount and hand Tsimikas the chance to become an icon.

The left-back did just that, coolly stroking home as Mendy dived the wrong way, before racing off to celebrate FA Cup glory.

After the win, Liverpool fans were full of praise for the Greek Scouser on social media including a glowing endorsement for the player who last wore the No. 21 shirt.
