Chelsea Vs. Liverpool, 2012 FA Cup Final: Andy Carroll Scores?!?

In 2006, Liverpool fell behind 2-0 to West Ham United in the FA Cup final and ended up winning the trophy. In 2012, they went down 2-0 in the FA Cup final and were written off by just about everyone when Chelsea's second goal went in, but they're back in the match thanks to an attacking substitution. Improbably, Andy Carroll has come off the bench to score for Liverpool, making it 2-1 in the 64th minute.

It actually looked like Carroll was going to make a mess of his chance when he first got the ball, but he recovered to do very well. After Jose Bosingwa misplayed a ball and it fell to Carroll's feet, he took way more touches than were necessary or helpful, creating a more difficult shot for himself. He then proceeded to blast that shot that was more difficult than it had to be into the roof of the net. I don't understand anything anymore.
