In the end, it was Chelsea’s goalkeeper, Petr Cech, who emerged as the hero of the night, saving three of Bayern Munich’s penalties to secure a historic victory for his team.
Another unforgettable moment in football history was Diego Maradona’s “Hand of God” goal in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final match between Argentina and England.

In the 2005 UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan, Liverpool found themselves 3-0 down at half-time. However, what followed was one of the most astonishing comebacks in football history, as Liverpool scored three goals in the space of six minutes to level the score. They then went on to win the match on penalties, with goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek making a series of incredible saves to secure the victory.
