Listen Here: A game of two halves mp3
One of the biggest football clichés has to be it’s a game of two halves. Of course it is! The first half and the second half. But sometimes this cliché is true. For example, Liverpool against AC Milan in the Champions League final in 2005. AC Milan in the first half score three goals. Surely they are going to win. In the second half, Liverpool score three goals to force extra time and finally to win on penalties. Truly a game of two halves.
