A car for Sammy

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Nov 28, 2017 3:40 pm

It was the crowning moment of a fantastic year. The dramatic title win at Hamburg and the emotional Champions League triumph against Valencia in Milan was followed a few months later, on 27 November 2001, by the drama of the Intercontinental Cup against Boca Juniors from Argentina. A match that is very special for Samuel Kuffour: The goal scored by the Canadian on 109 minutes pave the way for the second Intercontinental Cup victory after 1976.

Boca Juniors from Argentina (including Riquelme) prepared thoroughly for this match. The big club from Buenos Aires were excused from all national obligations by the Argentinian FA so they could spend six days preparing for the match in Tokyo. Bayern only arrived the day before the game – but nevertheless lifted the trophy.

Kuffour was named man of the match. His prize was a car. "I'll give that to my mother in Ghana," said the defender at the time.

I remember this , I was at school ,,, I checked the score on my mobile (vodafone live news!! ) As soon as I scrolled down (it felt like eternity) and saw the final score I went running around the ground like crazy :lol:
U l-Kotra qamet f’daqqa – u għajtet: “Jien Maltija!
Miskin min ikasbarni, - miskin min jidħak bija!”
U l-Kotra għanniet f’daqqa – u semmgħet ma’ l-irjieħ
L-Innu ta’ Malta tagħna, – u l-leħen kien rebbieħ,

Ghanian, Canadian, what's the difference? :lol:

I was at work, checking on livescore.com, refreshing every few seconds expecting the match to go to penalties when suddenly I see 1-0 :)
