Istanbul, Turkey. 24 months ago.
Milan were leading 3-0 to Liverpool. Six minutes later, it was 3-3. Liverpool went through the penalty shoot-out to win the UEFA Champions League.
Athens, Greece. 24 hours ago.
That abominable day was finally forgotten. The two-year long heartache was healed. Milan completed a dramatic revenge on the same event to lift the trophy for the 7th time.
Milan started their campaign with a blow from the Calciopoli scandal. They weren’t even permitted to play in the Champions League.
But they went on beating giants in the likes of FC Bayern and Manchester United just to reach the final and face Liverpool for the second time in two years.
A brace from ‘SuperPippo’ Inzaghi and one consolation goal from Holland’s Dirk Kuyt wraps the single most anticipated football event of 2007. It was a really great showdown for a Milanisti.
Too bad I missed the game.
