Luis Diaz accidentally sent the FA Cup lid flying backwards during Liverpool’s trophy lift on the Wembley catwalk, despite a firm warning from Trent Alexander-Arnold. The England international right-back spotted the danger and tried to tap Diaz but it was simply too late for the jubilant Colombian.
The £37.5million January recruit was excellent for the Reds and he was keen to enjoy his moment, lifting the trophy aloft.
But the famous lid, that has been dropped a number of times over the years, took another battering as it flew backwards towards the guests watching on from the Royal Box.
Curtis Jones and Ibrahima Konate watched on in horror before quickly looking around for the missing piece of the trophy.
