This Day In Sports History (May 26th) – Manchester United
Bayern Munich opened the scoring six minutes into the contest when winger Mario Basler scored on a free kick from just outside the 18-yard box. Still down 1-0 in the second half, United manager Alex Ferguson inserted strikers Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into his line-up in search of the tying goal. Just as injury time began, Sheringham scored off a corner kick to tie the game at 1-1, shocking the Bayern players and fans. Two minutes later, with only seconds remaining in the match, Solskjaer would score off another corner to cap one of the greatest comebacks in soccer history.
Manchester United had completed a treble, as they had won the FA Premier League and the FA Cup earlier in the season. With Barcelona and Inter Milan both completing trebles in the past two season, they joined Manchester United as three of only six teams to accomplish the feat in European football history.
Here is a look at Manchester United’s two goals in extra time.
