These were Divock Origi words extracted from his verified twitter handle after the match
‘Special’ and ‘unbelievable’
Origi’s two goals bookended the Reds’ remarkable 4-0 Champions League semi-final second leg win over Barcelona at Anfield – a result good enough to overturn last week’s 3-0 reverse at Camp Nou and send Jürgen Klopp’s team into a second successive final.
The Belgian’s brace sandwiched a double from Georginio Wijnaldum as Liverpool found a way to overcome the odds on an unforgettable night.
Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Origi said: “I think It was more about the team. We did so well, we fought and we knew it was going to be a special night. We wanted to also fight for the injured players.
“It’s just special. It’s hard to describe with words. You can feel it, you can hear it. Unbelievable.
“We fought so hard. Robbo’s a fighter and we knew it could have an impact of the players. Even me at the end, I had some cramps. We did it. It shows we have a good mix of talent and hard work. It’s special for us because we go to the final this time.”

Barcelona were attempting to find a way to defend a corner from the right effectively, but Alexander-Arnold sent a low pass across the box for Origi to fire a close-range effort into the top corner.
Liverpool may likely meet with Tottenham as “there nothing impossible”.
