17′: Fowler (3-0)
20′: Toni (3-1)
22′: Zickler (3-2)

87′: Kvarme (5-5)
A frantic first half saw eight goals netted as Liverpool took a three goal advantage through Dirk Kuyt, Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler, only for Bayern Legends to storm into the lead following efforts from Luca Toni, Paulo Sergio and a brace from Alexander Zickler.
Fowler’s deflected free-kick made it 4-4 just before half-time, however a set-piece special from Xabi Alonso – who played 45 minutes for both former clubs – restored Bayern’s lead with 18 minutes left.
However, unlikely hero Bjorne Tore Kvarme lashed in a late equaliser to cap a highly entertaining afternoon at Anfield.
All funds raised were for the LFC Foundation in support of its charitable programmes and partnerships.
