Liverpool Victorious in a Thrilling FA Cup Final against West Ham on This Day in 2006.

    Pepe Reina saved three penalties and his reputation when Liverpool won a thrilling FA Cup final against West Ham on this day in 2006.

    Reina nearly dropped the cup in regulation time at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff due to errors that gave the Hammers two goals.

    But he was the hero of the gunfight, saving Bobby Zamora, Paul Konchesky and Anton Ferdinand to break the hearts of the valiant Hammers.

    Liverpool’s seventh FA Cup win mirrored the result that saw them crowned European champions in Istanbul 12 months earlier and, like against Milan, Reina only got his shot at glory with yet another superhuman effort from Steven Gerrard.
