UEFA Europa League
Group Stage
12/2/2010

3 – FC Liverpool (ENG) ———– Gerrard 76′, pen 88′, 89′
1 – SSC Napoli (ITA) ————— Lavezzi 28′

The arrival of the club captain off the bench as second half substitute sparked a late rally in the final quarter hour as English Premier League outfit FC LIVERPOOL flew past visiting Serie A side SSC NAPOLI 3-1 in Group K of the UEFA Europa League.

England World Cup midfielder STEVEN GERRARD scored all three goals, including the winner from the penalty spot as FC Liverpool overturned a first half deficit opposite Napoli and in the process ended a goalless drought that had extended well past two and a half games in the UEFA Europa League.
