UEFA Champions League Final Moscow 2008

Yes, Manchester United is the king of Europe again. It was a close match with plenty of drama with the results decided on penalties. Here are the key highlights:

Man U dominated the first half by scoring first through a Ronaldo’s header. Man U could have sealed the game with 2 near misses. However, Chelsea got lucky and struck back via Frank Lampard when the ball bounced onto his path after 2 deflections.

The second half was a scrappy affair. The typical English long ball affair started to rear its ugly head in Man U’s game. There was a sense that things were not going Chelsea’s way after both Drogba and Frank hit the goal post. Man U also went close during extra time when Terry had to clear Giggs’ effort off the line. For reasons known only to Drogba, he got sent off for slapping Vidic.

I thought Man U cause was lost when Ronaldo hesitated and missed his penalty kick. I thought the game was gone just right before John Terry’s kick. Fortunately, Terry slipped, the game swung back to Man U’s favour and the rest was history.

Perhaps Sir Alex can retire now. Perhaps Ronaldo can leave and play in La Liga now.
