The King of Europe

Man Utd
1-1 Chelsea
: Incredible penalty spot kick drama

" Manchester United became kings of Europe for the third time on a night of high drama and emotion in Moscow as they beat Chelsea 6-5 on penalties after a 1-1 draw after extra time. "

Cristiano Ronaldo scores the first goal before Frank Lampard scores the equalizer before half time. As the second half is on, in terms of possession and shots chances on goal attempt, I shall say Chelsea won both of it. With the shot chances from
Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard hit the bar twice as they struggle through to the extra time, then penalty shoot out.

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar was the hero with a penalty save to deny Nicolas Anelka after Chelsea captain John Terry had missed the chance to win the Blues the trophy by firing his own spot-kick hit the post. I was hoping Chelsea to miss the penalty when Cristiano Ronaldo miss the 3rd penalty spot. and surprisingly, John Terry indeed missed the penalty. lol.

As now I'm speechless and was too exited so I will let the photos to the talkings.
