The Liverpool captain was busy taking precautions to stop any Blaugrana counter-attack when he saw the ball going inside the net.
Divock Origi scored Liverpool’s fourth goal against Barcelona in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Semifinal, booking the Reds’ ticket to the Final.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was going to take a corner kick when he saw the Blaugrana were disorganized and his quick thinking let Divock Origi score the team’s fourth goal of a magical night.
But during the corner kick, captain Jordan Henderson was busy organizing the defense in case Barca would counter-attack, and today he explained what came through his mind during that play.
“I think I was sort of talking to someone and organizing something, just protection for the corner,” Henderson was quoted by the club’s official website.
“I’d turned around, I’d seen the ball flying into the back of the net. I didn’t really know what had happened.”
“It was an amazing goal to score in a game of that magnitude. It was fantastic for a young player to have the awareness to be able to do that and put in the ball and obviously for Divock to react to that,” he added.
“It was a great finish in the end. So yes, it was an amazing goal in the end and that summed up the night really.”
Henderson continued: “It was an amazing night. It was a special night that people will be talking about for a long time.”
“It means everything. For the club, for the fans, for everybody involved, but most importantly for the players.”
The player concluded: “Not many people would have thought [it was possible] at the start of the season – especially at the end of last season, it was a difficult end.”
“We all know how good Spurs are – great players and on the day, they can beat anybody really. So it’ll be a really tough final. So we need to be ready.”
