It hasn’t even been a month since Jordan Henderson lifted the European Cup for Liverpool after their 2-0 win over Tottenham in Madrid.

June 1, 2019, is a date now permanently written into Liverpool Football Club folklore.

Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi also wrote themselves into the club’s history books after scoring the goals that won the Reds their sixth Champions League title.

Three-and-a-half weeks after the final, Liverpool have released a video featuring never-before-seen footage from before, during and after the match.

And it’s gold.

The first four minutes of the video show new footage of the build-up to the final, including fans in the streets of Madrid and the players arriving at the Wanda Metropolitano.

We then see the players and match officials in the tunnel before walking out onto the pitch.

From six minutes onwards, we’re treated to new angles from the game’s key moments and, perhaps more interestingly of all, we get to hear the words of referee Damir Skomina.

When Liverpool’s first-minute penalty was awarded, Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen says to Skomina: “He got his arm, what can he do? What can he do? The ball was going that way.”

Skomina simply replies: “Checking,” as a VAR review took place.

We then hear the words: “Clear penalty. 100 per cent.”

It seems the match officials were in absolutely no doubt that Moussa Sissoko’s handball from Sadio Mane’s attempted cross was worthy of a penalty.

Skomina warns the players not to encroach on the penalty before Salah smashed the ball past Hugo Lloris.

We hear more comments from Skomina as the game progress - at one point he tells Trent Alexander-Arnold to run back to his own half - before we finally get to Origi’s goal.

Virgil van Dijk collapsed to the ground when that went in. He knew it was game over.

Finally, we get to see new footage of the post-match celebrations, including the likes of Adam Lallana and Salah on the phone to their loved ones.

There’s also a great angle of the touching scene involving Henderson and his dad, Brian.
