On This Day 2008! Man Utd won Chelsea with penalties shootout to win 3rd UCL title

The 2008 UCL final was contested by Manchester United and Chelsea, making it an all-English club final for the first time in the history of the competition. 

Manchester United won the match 6–5 on penalties, after a 1–1 draw following extra time. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Manchester United in the 26th minute with a header from a cross by Wes Brown, but Frank Lampard equalized shortly before half-time. 

The second half and most of the extra time passed without incident until Chelsea’s Didier Drogba was sent off for slapping Nemanja Vidić four minutes from the end. In the penalty shoot-out, Ronaldo missed Manchester United’s third kick, giving John Terry the chance to win the game for Chelsea, only for him to slip and hit the post. Edwin van der Sar then saved Nicolas Anelka’s effort from Chelsea’s seventh kick to give Manchester United their third European Cup title.
