Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso said Sunday night's Euro 2008 win over Germany was just as good as the Reds dramatic Champions League victory over AC Milan in 2005.

The 26-year-old played a key role in the 1-0 win over Joachim Loew's Germany team to claim Spain's first European title since 1964.

He said the win in Vienna was just as good, if not better as Liverpool's dramatic fight back from 3-0 down to level the 2005 Champions League final 3-3 before they won the title on penalties.

“I don't know if it is bigger than that win, but it is definitely one of the happiest moments of my career,” said Alonso.

“It is a moment to savour, just like it was in the Champions League final.”

Three years ago, Alonso played a crucial role as Liverpool completed an incredible comeback from 3-0 down at half-time.

At 3-2, Liverpool were awarded a penalty, which Alonso stepped up to take.

The penalty was saved, but Alonso fired the rebound into the roof of the net to make it 3-3 and complete one of the greatest fight-backs in European history and Alonso said he enjoyed the taste of European success again.
