Documentaire Finale Coupe des Champions 1967 1968 Manchester United Benfica

29 May 1968
Referee: Concetto Lo Bello (Italy), 
Att: 92,225

Tonight's match at Wembley was watched by a crowd of 100,000 and an
estimated 250 million TV viewers. It was the biggest television audience
since the World Cup final two years before.
As both teams wear red kit, United opted to play in their blue away strip for the game.
The first half passed in a flurry of fouls before Bobby Charlton
headed the opening goal in the second half to make it 1-0.
With only 10 minutes left to go, Benfica scored the equaliser
and very nearly won the match when their feared striker Eusebio broke
away from Nobby Stiles, the player tasked with marking him, and blasted the ball towards the net.
But it was saved by keeper Alex Stepney and the game went into extra time.
Two minutes into extra time Best put United ahead again, slipping
round the keeper and gently tapping it over the line.
It was followed by two more United goals, from 19-year-old
Brian Kidd and captain Bobby Charlton, taking the final score to 4-1.
