Wissam ben Yedder’s Twitter fun after Sevilla’s fightback vs. Liverpool

Wissam ben Yedder was a 14-year-old growing up in Paris when AC Milan dramatically lost to Liverpool in the fairytale (or nightmare, depending on your point of view) that was the 2004-05 Champions League final.

That game, when Liverpool came from 3-0 down to win the Champions League on penalties, clearly made an impression on the Sevilla forward.

The two-goal hero of Tuesday's 3-3 draw spared a thought for the Rossoneri after inspiring the La Liga outfit's second half fight-back from 3-0 down in Tuesday's group stage game against the Reds.

"Hope AC Milan watched it," tweeted the ex-Toulouse striker, along with a screenshot of the final result which featured his own name after he netted twice in 15 minutes after the interval to spark the fight-back that concluded with Guido Pizarro's 93rd-minute equaliser.

There was no trophy for the Spanish side afterwards, but their spirited revival keeps them very much in the hunt for a place in the round of 16.
