Manchester United became European Champions on this day 2008! Video

Expectations were high on that fateful night considering that it was the first time two English sides will be playing in the Champions League final and both Manchester United and Chelsea were evenly matched based on squad quality.

Manchester United started the match guns-blazing as Cristiano Ronaldo gave the Red Devils the lead via a sublime header from a well-measured cross from Chris Brown.

However, Frank Lampard restored parity on the stroke of halftime after he latched on to a loose ball in Manchester United box.

A tensed match that saw both teams go at each other from the blast of the whistle to the end of regulation time and extra-time, the 2008 final remains one of the most interesting.

On this day, John Terry and Niklas Anelka’s missed penalties gave the Red Devils their second Champions League title in history.
