Man U triumph over Bayern for Champ’s League 1999

This was probably one of the sweetest memories that I had for Man U football. I was staying in a holiday flat with Esh and we (or rather I) woke up in the middle of the night to catch the match live.

If you are a footie fan, you should already know that Man U had lost its talismanic captain, Roy Keane, to suspension, and Bayern had the impenetrable Oliver Khan in goal. It seemed like a lost cause, especially when Man U were down by a goal with minutes of the game left to play.

Who would have thought that Man U would turn the game around in a matter of minutes and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat through 2 goals via Sheringham and Solskjaer? That was a feeling of pure exhiliration, although Esh did feel a bit sorry for the Bayern players as they cried on the pitch.
