Sundays dramatic penalty shootout victory over Cardiff City in the Carling Cup final was Liverpool’s first piece of silverware since the 2006 FA Cup and Kenny Dalglish’s first trophy in his second spell at the Merseyside club. Liverpool were victorious winning 3-2 on penalties after both sides could not be separated after finishing 2-2 in extra time.
