Middlesbrough 4 – 2 Steaua Bucharest


Another heroic comeback from the Boro. This is the semi final and they did exactly the same against Basel. When I say exactly the same, I mean it. Three down to both teams, they suddenly kicked into gear and scored four in quick succession, largely thanks to the efforts of Mark Viduka and Massimo Maccarone. Sure, they got annihilated by Sevilla in the final, but it was a glorious run. The unfortunate offshoot of this is that it largely secured the appointment of Steve McClaren as England manager. Oh dear.
