Wooohoooo, Manchester United has done it again! After defending their 2008 EPL title, they make it even bigger this time by beating Chelsea 1:1 normal time and 6-5 in penalty shooutout.
I think the match was so so. For the sake of a quick summary, MU was better in the first half, Chelsea controlled most of the second half, and extra time did produce some cracking tension moments. It’s worth mentioning that it’s the first time where a UEFA final is held between 2 English teams, and could be the first time in Chelsea club history to lift the UEFA cup if they had won it.
The penalty shootout was a clasical one as can be seen from this video.
1. Christiano Ronaldo scored the first goal of the match on 26′.
2. Frank Lampard equalize on the 45′
3. Drogba was sent off during the last minute of extra time (120′) for handing Vidic a slap.
4. Ronaldo missed his penalty!
5. Ryan Giggs made his 759th appearance for MU, surpassing Boby Charlton’s 758.
6. Terry missed his penalty while Anelka’s effort was saved.
* Have to say it’s kind of bad luck for Chelsea. Both team had equal chance to win this game.
Anyway, it was a good season for MU!
