Real Madrid supporter since 1998. (After Zidane destroyed (the great)Brasil in a world cup final in 1998), aged 8 i was starstruck.
Followed FC Bayern Munich after Khan(the only goalkeeper in the history of football to win the FIFA World Cup Golden Ball (in World Cup 2002).) and Ballack heroics(But they could not unlock a resolute German defence. Lee Chun-Soo tried in the 70th minute when he skipped past several defenders only to be hacked down by Ballack.
The German playmaker was cautioned but held his nerve despite knowing that he would miss the final if his side went through.
Ballack then ironically scored Germany's winner with 15 minutes remaining, firing past Lee Woon-Jae at the second attempt and ended Korea's World Cup adventure.) in 2002.
Followed Chelsea after Ballack went there 15 May 2006. and Shevchenko complete transfer to Chelsea 1 Jun 2006.
I remember 21st February 2006 Ac Milan vs Olympique Lyon 1/4 final CL , 2nd half ...
Scorers: Filippo Inzaghi (25,88), Andriy Shevchenko (90+3). Late Sheva heroics saved Milan when all looked lost(i for one had got off my couch and was getting ready for bed lol). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kgzWy14Q54&feature=youtube_gdata
