Shaqiri: We achieved something very special

If you're anything like us then you've spent the last 19-20 hours consuming anything and everything praising our lads and the brilliant display they put in last night.


The players, to a man, gave their all, left everything out there on the pitch and they'll all be remembered for a long time at Anfield. No matter where their career takes them.


One of those players was Xherdan Shaqiri, a player who has had some great European nights with Bayern Munich, but has never experienced anything like last night.


He said after the match (via the Liverpool Echo): "It was crazy.


"Everyone was shocked, like they couldn’t believe it.


"We were celebrating, some of the guys were crying. Me? No! I was just so happy, so happy to have helped.


"It is so difficult to explain what happened in the game. Unbelievable! Unbelievable performance, unbelievable atmosphere. We knew everyone had written us off because of what happened in the first leg.


"It was an incredible performance. If you believe – if you believe in life – anything and everything can happen. The fans they pushed us to the end. They wouldn’t let us stop.


"We have achieved something special. The manager just told us to perform, to keep going. We knew everything could happen and we are really proud of what we have achieved."
