With United gunning for their second double in three seasons, this final brought back memories of the 1977 final, when these two rivals met for the first time beneath the ???Twin Towers????????, and United denied the Merseysiders of the double, but 19 years later, United weren????????t to be denied, and the double double was complete in successive seasons. United started with confidence, and Beckham struck a ???bullet-shot???????? that James did well to save in the opening exchanges. But the expected breakthrough didn????????t follow, and tension mounted. The 1st half passed and the 2nd continued in a similar manner as extra time loomed. But with 85 minutes played Beckham sent over an out-swinging corner, which James only managed to parry and newly crowned ???Footballer of the Year???????? Eric Cantona pounced. The Frenchman, within an instant re-positioned himself and drove the ball back through a crowded penalty area and into the net. It had been a remarkable year for the hugely talented Cantona, who had marked his return to football after an absence of 8 years with an awe-inspiring season that didn????????t go unnoticed by the critics. ???You don????????t win anything with kids??? said former Liverpool player and pundit Alan Hansen at the start of that season about United????????s young team. Nine months later, these same kids had won the double and had made their mark in football history. So now relive this day in history once again, when Eric Cantona became the first Frenchman to lead his team up the Wembley steps and receive the Cup for a record 9th time for the Club.
