1999 Champions League final: Man Utd vs Bayern Munich

The craziest game I've ever seen in my life. Heart-stopping final, because Man U so very nearly lost it before clawing back from the jaws of death to clinch the treble. Wow, I felt shivers just watching this fantastic video that will never be forgotten in history.

Coolian,

Yes..it was probably the greatest champion league's game ever - at least the most dramatic one. I was in Europe at that time and was watching the game on TV live. The Bayern Muncih players were already starting to celebrate with only the injury time remaining. Substitutes Teddy Shringham scored the equalizer and Ole Gunner scored the winner within 3 minutes or so. I think thus the term 'super subs' came into existence.
Man U did the treble that year having already won the FA cup and the league.
Thanks for bringing back the wonderful moments!
