May as well milk the build up the final on Saturday. Here’s the winning goal from last time the final was held at Wembley in 1992. Struck with such tenacity by Koeman and that wall was definitely encroaching.

I remember frantically scrambling around Florida as a 15 year with my Dad trying to find a bar that was showing this game. We found a bar with 20 minutes left and United trailing. The Americans in the bar couldn’t understand why we were celebrating so vigorously when this goal went in.

The jubilation in this photo perfectly sums up the magic of football.
