Striker Craig Bellamy scored the crucial goal against former club Manchester City to put Liverpool into their first Wembley final for 16 years.

The Wales international scored with 16 minutes remaining to make it 2-2 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate.

City took the lead through Nigel de Jong's long-range effort but Steven Gerrard equalised with a generously-awarded penalty and although Edin Dzeko gave his side a sight of extra-time, those hopes were extinguished by Bellamy.
