Manchester United conquer Europe

Latest update : 2008-05-22

Manchester United claimed the 2008 Champion's League title after winning the final in Moscow on Wednesday. The Red Devils beat Chelsea 6-5 in the penalty shootout. The two teams drew 1-1 after regular time and overtime.

Manchester United won the Champions League here on Wednesday beating Premiership rivals Chelsea 6-5 in a penalty shootout after the match finished 1-1 after extra-time.
  
United claimed their second Champions League title under Sir Alex Ferguson when Edwin van der Sar saved from Chelsea's Nicolas Anelka - Anelka's club captain John Terry had missed with what was potentially the decisive penalty earlier.
  
United's Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo - who was to miss a penalty in the penalty shootout - opened the scoring in the 26th minute but Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard equalised on the stroke of half-time. The match ended 1-1 at the end of normal time.
  
Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, likely to have been making his last appearance for the side, was redcarded towards the end of the second-half of extra-time after he tapped Nemanja Vidic on the face during a fracas between the two sides.
