In the field of (broken) dreams

Sunday, 20 May, 2012

There was a moment in last night’s enthralling Champions League Final when, after regular time and extra time had ended, Bayern Munich were leading Chelsea 3 — 1 on penalties. Everything about the history of shoot outs between Germans and Brits (as regards penalties, anyway), suggested that a resolute Bavarian hand was now on the trophy. Three minutes later, Didier Drogba took a sordidly cool penalty, side-footing it into the bottom-left corner of the net as the Bayern keeper, Manuel Neuer, went the other way. Chelsea had won the shootout 4 — 3. The victory parade will end with a huge party at Parsons Green in London this evening.
