Figo did a step over or two and passed the ball to Zidane who drew in Gary Neville and laid it on a plate for Figo to curl into the top corner. Beautiful.
Real Madrid were laden with Galacticos. Robert Carlos, Zidane, Figo and Ronaldo. They took a three-goal lead before Ruud van Nistelrooy scored a conciliation. Sir Alex Ferguson wasn’t happy but thought United were still in the game.
“We conceded bad goals but we are still in with a chance”
They weren’t. United went on lose the 2nd leg 4-3 with Ronaldo bagging a hat-trick.
