As all the football followers out there know, Manchester United was recently crowned as the latest Champions of Europe, beating Chelsea 6-5 on penalty shoot-outs. The score was locked at 1-1 after 120 minutes of play.

Ronaldo drew first blood for United, before Lampard scored the equalizer right at the end of the first half (DARNN!!! Waiting).

Twice Chelsea threatened to take the lead, but both were denied by the woodwork, the first of which was a brilliant curling shot by Drogba. Then Terry had Giggs' goal-bound shot cleared on the goal-line. 4 minutes before the match ended, Drogba was sent-off for slapping Vidic. What ensued in the penalty shoot-out was even more nail-biting for United supporters. With Ronaldo missing his penalty, Terry slipped and sent his penalty onto Van Der Sar's right hand post in what should have been the winning penalty, if scored. Giggs scored his penalty, in his record breaking appearance, just before Van Der Sar became the hero of the night, brilliantly saving Anelka Le Sulk's penalty. Peace Sign

For the 3rd time in history (1968, 1999, 2008), United are Champions of Europe. 50 years after the Busby Babes perished in the snow of Munich, 40 years after their first European triumph, how appropriate. For Chelsea, well, though luck, see you next season.
