It was a gruelling match that both teams managed to draw 1-1 at the end of the 90th minute plus extra time.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring after a sensational header from Wesley Brown in the 26th minute but Frank Lampard stunned United by scoring an equalizer a few minutes to half time.

The second half was very dry as both teams failed to get a goal, forcing them to be given an extra time of 30 minutes.

They were forced to square it out in the penalties where Manchester United won by 6-5.

It can be remembered that Cristiano Ronaldo and Frank Lampard missed the penalties after goalkeeper Petr Cech and Edwin Van der Sar did a great job to help their teams.

The Red Devils were crowned the Champions of Europe’s elite competition.
