Robben: It Was So Close

Bayern Munich attacker Arjen Robben was overcome with emotion after their 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The Dutchman was the match winner on the night as he rolled the ball past Roman Weidenfeller in the 89th minute to see them past their rivals.

It was a sweet success for Robben, who missed a crucial penalty a year ago when they lost the Champions League final at home to Chelsea.

Robben then went on to miss some glorious chances as he looked set for another disappointing showing on the big stage - but just when extra-time was calling, he danced his way onto a backheel from Franck Ribery and fired in the winner.

"I heard so many people saying in the last weeks saying they would grant me this. They told me: 'You'll score the goal.' It’s not quite sunk in yet. There’s a lot of emotion," he said.

"You know, this was such a close match. A match with two teams at the same level. It was an even game: they had chances; we had chances. For the goal, though, I just reacted to Franck's flick and then the ball went in."
