If you don’t follow Tomikoshi Photography on Instagram you need to. The Japanese photographer is the best in the business and has documented so hundreds of amazing football players and matches from J-League, World Cups and Champions League.
The Champions League is not exception and in 1999 he photographed Manchester United when they travelled away at the San Siro in the 2nd leg against Inter Milan.
The Inter Milan team were filled with legends
Inter Milan had an amazing team out that night. The original Ronaldo, Zanetti, (Championship Manager legend) Taribo West and Diego Simeone.
Manchester United had a vintage line up
To be fair United didn’t have a bad line up. In midfield were Giggs, Beckham, Keane with Yorke and Cole up front. Vintage.
The atmosphere was mad
Flares, flags and a full San Siro. Siri, show me a photo of the Champions League.
Ronaldo was a bit rusty
The original R9 had just come back from injury and only lasted an hour.
Beckham, Baggio and Neville
The match finished 1-1 and was enough for Manchester United to progress. And you know what happened next.
