Words can’t describe how I feel right now but I’ll try to explain it.
It was a dramatic and nerve-wrecking Champions League final at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow between Manchester United and Chelsea. Yellow cards, confrontations, red card, extra time, tired legs, penalties… it was a match that have everything.
Christiano Ronaldo’s first half 26th minute header was quickly canceled by Lampard’s 45th minutes goal (a deflection by Essien). Overall Chelsea looked the stronger side in the late 1st half, 2nd half and extra time. I thought Manchester United was doomed. I tried to visualize how the winning is going to be celebrated and somehow I don’t see a blue team celebrating.
Then come the decider: penalties!
Ouch! It was one of the most excruciating moment of my life. My heart was beating fast. I felt like I was going to pass out. I was hiding behind my pillow most of the time… I couldn’t watch.
Somehow I had feelings that something is going to happen to Ronaldo, Anderson, Terry, Ashley Cole and Anelka during the penalty (tsk… at least I was half right).
Before I realize… it was all over. Edwin van der Sar is the hero!
And we’re the 2007/2008 Champions League Winner!!! We’re a Double Champions! (tsk Barclays Premier League leh)
Manchester United is Kings of Europe. (now we can brag wohoooo)
Glory Glory Glory
