Can you name Liverpool's matchday squad from the 2005 Champions League final?

To celebrate Rafael Benitez's 60th birthday, Sports Mole challenges you to name the Liverpool matchday squad from the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan.

Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez celebrates his 60th birthday today, providing us with the perfect chance to reflect on his finest hour.

The Spaniard secured his place in Liverpool folklore at the end of his first season at the helm by leading the club to their fifth Champions League crown, and the first since 1984.

It could not have happened in much more dramatic circumstances either, with the Merseysiders trailing 3-0 at half time against a star-studded AC Milan side before fighting back to take the game to penalties, where Andriy Shevchenko missed the decisive spot kick.

Few Champions League finals have come close in terms of drama or enduring status, but how many of Liverpool's matchday 18 from that night in Istanbul can you name?
