Xherdan Shaqiri revealed tears were shed in the dressing room as the achievement of overcoming Barcelona to reach a second successive Champions League final dawned on Liverpool's players.

"Crazy. Everyone was shocked, like they couldn't believe it. We were celebrating, some of the guys were crying. Me? No! I am just so happy, so happy to have helped," said the Switzerland international (below), making his first start since January 30.

"We have achieved something special. The manager didn't change things a lot. He just told us to perform, to keep going. We knew everyone had written us off.

"It was an incredible performance. If you believe - if you believe in life - anything and everything can happen."
