Watch: Goals From Today's Legends Clinker Between Liverpool And Milan

We love a bit of nostalgia here at Balls.ie.

We got very excited earlier when we saw just how seriously AC Milan were taking today's clash of legends with Liverpool. Mind you, we're sure we weren't the only ones sheepishly placing the cushion over the lap. If you didn't get a peek, look at this sauce.

Despite this collection of some of the most beautiful hair to ever grace world football, Milan were no match for a Liverpool side that featured 64-year-old Alan Kennedy and our very own sexagenarian, John Aldridge.

Granted, we should probably have used a more approporiate word.

Liverpool took the lead 25 minutes in when Glen Johnson picked out Robbie Fowler on the peanlty spot, the Reds legend getting his trusty left peg to the centre before Alessandro Costacurta.

Behold, the glorious gut of God.
It was a lead that the home side extended early into the second half when Djibrill Cissé coolly slotted home when put through by Gerrard.

But the Milanese legends came roaring back.
First we were treated to an Andrea Pirlo special - the Italian quarterback whipping a free-kick past the statuesque Sander Westerveld.

 That little throwback came prior to a beautifully measured curling effort from Guiseppe Pancaro in the 77th minute.
Don't worry if you can't remember who Guiseppe is, we're in a similar boat.

Apparently, he played for the Milanese between 2003-05. Whether we remember him or not, the lad won't really care if he can still turn this on as and when he likes it.
Now the cynics will be hard pressed to believe that this wasn't a setup, but the fact of the matter is Liverpool won the game with a last-minute Stevie Gerrard pile driver.

You can nearly see the wink at Chistian Abbiati as it went in.
The important thing is Anfield looked full, with all the money on the day going to a good cause. And if the still from the final goal is anything to go by, Djibrill Cissé hasn't been this happy in a long time.
A great day for the lads.
