The Reds defended an early goal for 90 minutes, holding off a surging Tottenham Hotspur for a 2-0 win to capture their first Champions League crown since 2005.

The club also took home European honors for the tournament’s predecessor, the European Cup, in 197719781981 and 1984.

Mohamed Salah scored on a penalty in the second minute after an inadvertent handball by Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko. And until the London side was willing to throw players forward late in the second half, Liverpool was happy to boot the ball downfield in defense.

Substitute Divock Origi, a hero of the Reds’ miraculous semifinal comeback against Barcelona, scored on a loose ball after a corner kick in the match’s waning moments to protect his side’s lead and seal the result.

Incredible parade

Liverpool’s players and club manager paraded through the city’s centre on Sunday after defeating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win their sixth Champions League trophy.

Thousands of Liverpool fans lined the streets to greet the champions who paraded from Allerton Maze to the waterfront – a route of almost 16 kilometres.

The parade began at Allerton Maze and will culminate in the city’s waterfront area. Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson estimated in a tweet that 250.000 people were in attendance, along with 250 members of the global media.
