Reds Braved Sweltering Heat To-win

UEFA Champions League
3rd Qualifying Round

Toulouse 0 -1 LIVERPOOL

LIV - Voronin

I tuned into the match on time but apparently, the Hong Kong channel lost the feed totally and my impatience meant that I didn't bother staying on for too long to watch.

Anyway, it was just the result Rafa wanted and that the Champions League first-timers didn't really threaten to derail Liverpool's CL dreams so early.

Andriy Voronin carried his decent pre-season form to this tie and his wonderful right footed strike was all that seperates the two sides despite a gulf of difference in class on paper.

Only worrying thing is skipper, Steven Gerrard, limped off midway through second half. But it could just only be a precautionary step taken by the medical staff to ensure he's fit for Sunday's titanic clash with Chelsea at Anfield.

A job well done and Liverpool will probably ease into the group stage without much fuss as they welcome Toulouse to Anfield in a fortnight's time.

PS: Thanks Fiz for providing the video. Those YouTube and DailyMotion people have really TOO much time on hand to remove EVERY single football video. It's so infuriating seriously.
