John Arne Riise scored his debut goal for Liverpool and set his new club on the way to a 3-2 win over Bayern Munich in the Super Cup final in August 2001, but can you name the rest of the starting XI from that day?

Gerard Houllier’s Reds qualified for the showdown of European champions at the Stade Louis II in Monaco having lifted the UEFA Cup as part of their treble-winning season, while Ottmar Hitzfeld’s Bayern had beaten Valencia to win the Champions League final in Milan.

Opposition goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, who saved three Valencia penalties in the San Siro shootout to help land the trophy, had been named European Goalkeeper of the Year at a ceremony in the principality a day earlier but could do nothing to prevent Liverpool racing into a 2-0 half-time lead.

Riise, a summer signing from AS Monaco, opened the scoring on his former club’s ground after 23 minutes when he turned in Michael Owen’s low cross at the far post.

Emile Heskey doubled the lead just before the break by beating two defenders on the edge of the box and coolly dinking a left-foot finish over Kahn.

The irrepressible Owen made it 3-0 just 13 seconds after the restart when he raced onto a long ball into the area and tucked a shot into the far corner of the net.

The Germans hit back through Hasan Salihamidzic and Carsten Jancker to make it 3-2 but the Reds held on to lift the Super Cup for the second time in the club’s history.

Riise, Heskey and Owen got the goals, but who else made up the starting XI against Bayern? Can you fill in the Missing Men below?
