Team meeting inspires Liverpool to A Cup victory

The faltering season of Liverpool seems to have all hopes of success pinned on winning the FA Cup after last years Premier League runners-up squeezed past Championship side Blackburn to book a semi final spot, BBC reports. Brazilian play maker Philippe Coutinho was once again the match winner with a stunning finish for the only goal of the game on 70 minutes.

Blackburn have been struggling with a less than Premier League standard pitch following their 0-0 draw with Liverpool in the first game at Anfield. Blackburn’s historic Ewood Park stadium does not have a high quality pitch, which still puts that of Lancashire neighbors Blackpool to shame. Ewood Park expected the home team to give Liverpool a run for their money during the replay, but found a game low on quality as both sides struggled to come to terms with a pitch with many bumps and areas devoid of grass. Fans at Anastasia Date ( know that Liverpool goalkeeper Simeon Mingolet kept his team in the game as Blackburn were the first to push for a goal in the opening period. Coutinho broke the deadlock with a great strike after exchanging passes with Jordan Henderson. A team meeting was held following the recent losses for Liverpool and manager Brendan Rodgers claimed the meeting galvanized his squad and helped lead them to victory.
