Champions League winners, you’re having a laugh? Well some of you are.When Liverpool fought back from 3-0 down to beat AC Milan and secure an incredible Champions League victory in 2005 they earned the right to keep the trophy for good – and a place at the Club World Cup.So in December 2005, Rafa Benitez’s side left Merseyside and jetted off to Japan to face the best of the rest from around the world.  Fortunately for the rest of us, Luis Garcia documented some of the trip. On Friday he uploaded a selection of pictures to Twitter while Jamie Carragher added one of his own with Dietmar Hamann and some Liverpool supporters saying: ‘This is a better picture to show what the Japan trip was really like!’Garcia’s images showed Steven Gerrard, Carragher and Co enjoying a meal out at a restaurant.Gerrard, Carragher and John Arne Riise looked to be having a brilliant time sampling some of the local cuisine alongside the likes of Florent Sinama-Pongolle, Mohamed Sissoko, Djibril Cisse, Djimi Traore and Jerzy Dudek.But some of their team-mates looked rather less cheery. Alongside Garcia on one table were the rather straight-faced Sami Hyypia, Fernando Morientes, Pepe Reina and Harry Kewell.And another picture Garcia posted showed Hamman, Steve Finnan and Xabi Alonso smiling, while Scott Carson appeared rather miserable and Peter Crouch gave the camera the thumbs up.’The lads went for a dinner and spend (sic) some time together,’ Garcia wrote alongside the pictures on Instagram. ‘These kind of moments are priceless. Team spirit is key to be successful, we were the Best on that.’ But that did not stop Carragher ribbing some of his former team-mates. He took aim at Hyypia and Co on Twitter, writing: ‘Big Sami’s table looks a barrel of laughs!!’Liverpool finished runners-up in the Club World Cup – then the Club World Championship – in Japan. Crouch bagged a brace and Gerrard scored once as they beat Costa Rican outfit Saprissa 3-0 in the semi-finals.But they were beaten by Brazilian side Sao Paulo in the final, with Mineiro scoring the winner. Liverpool created a number of chances and had three efforts ruled out for offside.
