It’s a day to remember.
The Italian champions took the spoils at the Estadio San Paolo in a 4-2 victory over AC Milan, who had dominated the competition all season.
The game was won thanks to a sublime volley from Francesco Totti that left Alessandro Del Piero standing in his path and sending the striker home.
It was a game-changer in the Champions League, the top-flight final and the final in Italy, which would have taken a draw to reach the last 16 had not Alessandro Pirlo’s penalty saved by Marcello Lippi.
It also marked the first time Italy had beaten a top-six European club in a semi-final.
The winner of the competition was not even named.
The title was changed to the Champions Cup, but it was still the Champions league.
The Italians were also the champions of the Champions Trophy in 2011, and were also runners-up in the tournament in the previous two years.
It remains one of the biggest prizes in world football, with the most prestigious prize being the World Cup.
