They did it!!!

Chelsea FC completed their storybook season with one of the most incredible victories in Champions League Final history, beating Bayern Munich on penalties.

Didier Drogba put in a sensational performance, scoring a header in the 88th minute to level the score after Thomas Muller’s opener five minutes earlier. With the score all tied at one at the end of regulation, the final went into extra time, where Petr Cech was called upon to save an Arjen Robben penalty.

With no one able to break the deadlock at in the extra 30 minutes of play, the game would go into penalties. Juan Mata would have his chance saved for Chelsea. But so would Ivica Olic, and Bastian Schweinsteiger put his on to the post for Bayern.

It all came down to Didier Drogba. The Ivorian stepped up to the ball with the kind of confidence you would only imagine a player with his pedigree could have. And as calm as ever, he slotted it home for the first Champions League in Chelsea FC history.

Here are some lessons learned from the historic night.
