Iker Casillas Was Given An Incredible Reception At Anfield, Last Night

Iker Casillas' career may have been laden with many more memorable nights than last night's 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield, as the former Spain captain and his FC Porto teammates bowed out of the Champions League at the second round stage, following a 5-0 aggregate defeat. But that didn't mean the evening wasn't special for the former European and World Champion.

The second leg of the tie marked Casillas' 173rd appearance in European competition and the Anfield crowd showed their appreciation for one of the modern generation's finest goalkeepers.

As the second half was about to get underway, Casillas trotted out towards his goal, where he was greeted by an enormous ovation from the home crowd.

There is a chance that last night's game at Anfield may have been Casillas' last ever Champions League appearance, with the former Real Madrid and Spain captain expected to leave Porto at the end of the current season, having spent the last two-and-a-half years with the Portuguese giants.

With his clean sheet last night, Casillas also broke a Champions League record for number of clean sheets kept in the competition. Not a bad way to potentially sign off from Europe's elite club competition, which Casillas has also won three times during his storied career.
