Liverpool's remarkable Europa League quarter-final comeback against German outfit Borussia Dortmund won't be forgotten anytime soon. 

The Reds looked down and out on more than one occasion at Anfield on Thursday night but managed to overcome the odds to secure their place in the semi-finals of the competition. 

It was a truly brilliant performance from Jurgen Klopp's side, who appear to be growing in strength and belief with every passing game.

It's safe to say that not everyone saw Liverpool's comeback coming, however. One man that certainly didn't expect the Reds to eliminate Dortmund was Stephen Warnock. 

With the Reds 2-0 down inside the opening 10 minutes, the club's former player tweeted after the game that he thought the match was over and opted to watch his daughter's swimming instead. 

He tweeted: "Can't believe at 0-2 down I decided to go and watch my daughters swimming thinking it was game over. #neverdoubtthereds ✋🏻"

Semi-final showdown

Surely, then, Warnock won't turn off his television too early when Liverpool take on Spanish outfit Villarreal in the semi-final of the competition.

Klopp's side will be in confident mood ahead of their two-legged clash with the La Liga side. After their heroic performance against Dortmund, there really could be no stopping them in this season's competition.
