UEFA Champions League

AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini celebrates after scoring the first goal in the first minute of the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday night.

Liverpool produced an incredible comeback to win the Champions League on penalties in one of the most remarkable finals of all time.

Trailing 3-0 at the break, the English club scored three times in six minutes early in the second half to take the match into extra time and eventually a penalty shootout which they won 3-2.

Maldini, in his seventh final, at 36 became the oldest man to score in the European Cup final. His goal is also the fastest ever in a UEFA Champions League final.
