Until after nine excellent penalties, finally the deadlock was broken! Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian was the hero! He saved a goal from Chelsea's Tammy Abraham, sealing their victory! Two weeks ago, the Spanish goalie was without a club, having been released by West Ham at the end of last season!

There was also praise for the all-female team of match officials led by France's Stephanie Frappart. It was the first time a women ref has taken charge of a major men's final.
