Maradona’s sheer brilliance on the pitch solidified his status as one of the greatest footballers of all time.

In 1999, Manchester United pulled off one of the most remarkable comebacks in football history during the Champions League final against Bayern Munich. Trailing 1-0 in stoppage time, United scored two goals in quick succession – with Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finding the back of the net – to secure a 2-1 victory and complete the historic treble of Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League titles.

More recently, in 2018, Liverpool staged an incredible comeback in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.
