Yalla Shoot :Twenty-five years since Man Utd beat Inter in Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford

Inter would not go down without a fight, knowing the second leg was still to come, and would have pulled a goal back but for one of Peter Schmeichel’s very best saves, as the Great Dane somehow pawed away Ivan Zamorano’s effort.

When Schmeichel was beaten, after an initial stop to deny Nicola Ventola, Henning Berg came to the rescue with a brilliant goalline clearance from Francesco Colonnese. There was still work to do in Milan but this was a huge statement by the Reds, and an accomplished performance in Europe’s top competition. A two-goal margin and clean sheet were more than anyone could ask for.

For some reason, one of my abiding memories of it was seeing photos in the newspaper on the following day, showing that Yorke had celebrating his heroics by spending a night out in Manchester, and being impressed by his energy. I was exhausted from just watching it!
