European Cup final

United became the first English side to win the European Cup on an emotional night at Wembley.
The trophy had become the Holy Grail for Sir Matt Busby and the 4-1 beating of Benfica, with Sir Bobby Charlton playing a key role, meant there was hardly a dry eye in the house.
Charlton's headed opener was cancelled out by Jaime Graca and Alex Stepney's save to thwart danger-man Eusebio meant the final headed to extra-time. United were clearly the stronger and goals from George Best, Brian Kidd and another from Charlton set the seal on a famous triumph.
10 years after the tragic plane crash, Munich survivors Busby and Charlton embraced after the final whistle as the Reds celebrated a place in the history books.
