Celebration of the 96 Friendly: Liverpool Local Legends vs. Liverpool International Legends Full Match Replay. (21.04.2014)
Liverpool legends came together for a charity match to celebrate the lives of the 96 fans who died in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster.
The Celebration of the 96 game at Anfield saw Kenny Dalglish's UK and Ireland team draw 2-2 against Gerard Houllier's Rest of the World side.
Thousands watched players including Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Markus Babbel and Luis Garcia in the match.
Hillsborough Family Support Group organised the event.
Striker Robbie Fowler, 39, scored for the UK and Ireland side but then midfielder Vladimir Smicer, 40, equalised for the international team.
After midfielder Bruno Cheyrou, 35, made the score 2-1, Fowler equalised with a penalty just before the final whistle.
Roy Evans, assistant manager to Kenny Dalglish, said the day was not about the players but the Hillsborough families.
Last week marked the 25th anniversary of Liverpool's FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest at the Sheffield ground.
Ninety-six men, women and children died at the match on 15 April 1989.
A memorial service marking the anniversary was held at Anfield on Tuesday.
