Man Utd's hat-trick of major European triumphs

Relive the moments when Manchester United captured European club football's biggest prize by listening to this stunning commentary from BBC radio.

In 1968, United beat Eusebio's Benfica 4-1 thanks to goals from Bobby Charlton (2), George Best and Brian Kidd to win the European Cup at Wembley.

In 1999, injury-time goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer gave Sir Alex Ferguson's side a 2-1 victory over a shell-shocked Bayern Munich in Barcelona.

And in 2008, Ferguson's team saw off Premier League rivals Chelsea in a penalty shootout after the game had finished 1-1 in extra time at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

For more on these historic triumphs, listen to a special 5 live Sport documentary - "United - 1968 And All That" - on Thursday at 2200 BST.
