We all know the story of the historic Champions League Final at Camp Nou. The Red Devils were trailing 1-0 against Bayern as the game went into the stoppage time and managed to complete one of the most amazing turnarounds in football’s history.
It was Teddy Sheringham who leveled the score in the 91st minute, sending the game in extra-time. Well… at least that’s what everyone thought.
United had another corner in the 93rd minute when David Beckham sent a perfect ball in Bayern’s penalty box. Sheringham headed the ball towards the goal, while Solskjaer stuck out his right foot to score a dramatic winner and secure the second Champions League crown for Manchester United.
It was a remarkable end of a remarkable season, as Sir Alex Ferguson’s United became the first English side to win the Treble of the Premier League, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League.
