Another of Manchester United’s Norwegian trio to win the Champions League in 1999 was the man who brought the trophy back to Old Trafford, with a last minute winner.

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer poked home from Teddy Sheringham’s flick to complete an incredible injury-time turnaround, going from 1-0 down to a 2-1 victory in a matter of minutes.

With that one goal, he quadrupled the amount of Norwegian Champions League winners, and has gone down as a legend for both club and country with his contribution to football.
