....who takes the Spot kicks if the Semi final has to be settled by penalty kicks?
I'd assume Gerrard, Kuyt, Torres and Alonso are the obvious, but who else (that might be likely on the pitch after 90 minutes, plus injury time) is a contender?
Babel? (only be there if he does not start IMO)
Crouch? (if he plays)
Anyone but Riise. He'll shut his eyes and just put his meat behind it, won't care where it goes as long as it leaves his boot like a fricken missile.
Think we need calm, cool, composed heads. I'd pass on Babel or Yossi. Masch could be a good option.

I agree Riise would be a bad choice, no matter how much he wants to be the hero. If he helps us keep the clean sheet, assuming we do get a goal, that will be hero enough for me.
Not sure about Babel or Yossi. Babel has a heck of a shot, but not sure at his young age he can take the pressure, although Yossi I'd expect to be cool. I'd only expect one of them to be available as they are natural replacements for each other, and if Babel starts, doubt he'd be there after full time, let alone extra time.
Not sure about Masch. Cool head, yes, but is he a natural goal scorer, with the confidence to just step up and put it in the back of the net.
