These photos of Manchester United v Inter Milan will make you weep

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

Name a more iconic photo than this. Beckham, Baggio and Gary Neville. Thinking about it this is where Neville must have picked up Baggio’s shirt in his class collection.

The match finished 1-1 and was enough for Manchester United to progress. And you know what happened next.
