SOCCER 2009 - UEFA Champions League Final - Barcelona Dazzles Manchester United 2-0
Barcas coach Josep Guardiola has once more demonstrated his extensive knowledge of football and showed why they are called by many the best team in the world this season.Manchester United started the game surprisingly open and offensive, but in the opening 10 minutes, they failed to score,especially Ronaldo began the game looking as if he wanted to win the match single-handed and earned a free-kick after only 90 seconds, but Park Ji-Sung's follow up was pushed across for a corner. In moments of greatest pressure from United, however, Barcelona has conducted the first serious attack, which was effectively finished by Samuel Eto'o.

Cameroon's Samuel Eto'o provided the first goal for Barcelona, in the 10th minute, he danced past defender Nemanja Vidic and fired a shot from close range that went in off the hand of Manchester United's Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar........and the rest, as they say, is history.
