Bayern Munich Vs. Chelsea, 2012 UEFA Champions League Final: Drogba Equalizes in the 88th Minute

Potential hero Thomas Muller was subbed out of the match shortly after putting Bayern in front. Daniel van Buyten entered the match in a clear defensive move by Jupp Heynckes. It didn't work.

Chelsea earned a corner in the 88th minute, and poor marking from Bayern allowed Didier Drogba to cut right in to the box and send a powerful header past Manuel Neuer. Wow, what can you say about the resilience of this Chelsea side and extra time is now staring us right in the face.

What a stunning turn of events as Bayern looked ready to lift the trophy. The looks on the Bayern supporters' faces are priceless at the moment.
