Half an hour had passed since Liverpool squeezed through to the Champions League final and their fans were still singing in a corner of Roma's vast Stadio Olimpico when Jurgen Klopp came running out of the tunnel leading to the dressing rooms.Klopp has not only made those fans believe and dream during Liverpool's remarkable run to Kiev, he has done the same with his players.By the end of Wednesday's match, Liverpool were hanging on for qualification with a 19-year-old academy graduate at right-back (Trent Alexander-Arnold), a left-back who was relegated from the Premier League with Hull last season and was playing in Scotland's lower leagues five years ago (Andrew Robertson), and an unheralded center-back from Estonia (Ragnar Klavan).Outside the Liverpool dugout was Klopp, who does his transfer-market shopping in Southampton rather than the Santiago Bernabeu.It's understandable if Real Madrid doesn't quite know what to make of Liverpool going into the final.
