This weekend's Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid is set to be a very interesting clash.

Jurgen Klopp's side play a very exciting brand of football, creating a huge number of chances but also having the habit of conceding a few at the other end. As for Madrid, they have already been involved in a number of dramatic moments in this competition in recent months. All of this suggests we could see a hugely exciting game in Paris on Saturday night.

In saying that, it will have some way to go to live up to some of the most dramatic finals in the past. Liverpool's three-goal comeback in 2005 immediately springs to mind, as does Manchester United's late flurry of goals in 1999.

In search of a historic treble, Alex Ferguson's entered injury time at the Nou Camp trailing 1-0 against Bayern Munich. We all know what happened next.

The late strikes from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunner Solskjaer have been replayed countless times over the years, although we have now been given a look at them from a new angle.

Fan footage of Manchester United's 1999 comeback

On the 23rd anniversary of their famous comeback, some footage from the stands that captured the pandemonium of Manchester United's two late goals on that famous night have been doing the rounds on social media.


With camera phones not a thing before the turn of the millennium, it is remarkable that somebody managed to record the final moments of that match.


It comes from Thomas Coxhead, who shared the footage that his father captured while behind in the stand behind the goal in Barcelona. He snuck his camcorder into the match and whipped it out for the final few minutes of the game. He hardly could have done so at a better time.

He managed to get both goals, as well as the celebrations that ensued, on his device. Sit back and enjoy this.



The availability of smartphones in recent times makes footage such as this quite common in the modern day, but there is certainly something charming about seeing shaky camcorder footage of one of the most famous football matches of the 20th century.
