Didier Drogba joined a number of other Champions League heroes with his actions in Chelsea's win over Bayern Munich.
Europe's greatest club competition has seen some great finals, some close and some not. As one would expect, the close finals all needed a special performance from an individual.
Here are some of the biggest heroes to play in a Champions League final.
Didier Drogba popped up to score the equalizing goal in the 88th minute of the game, just five minutes after Bayern Munich opened the scoring and seemed headed to victory.
The Ivorian was a threat to the German side throughout the game and cemented his hero status by stroking home the game-winning penalty during the shootout.
Henrik Larsson's production off the bench in the 2006 Champions League final between Barcelona and Arsenal was instrumental to the outcome of the game.
Larsson came on in the 60th minute and provided two assists in the space of four minutes to help his team win the title. While the two scorers, Samuel Eto'o and Juliano Belleti, have to be noted, those goals would not have happened without Larsson's influence.
Steven Gerrard is one of two Liverpool players from this game on this list. The Reds captain scored the goal that started his team's comeback and won the penalty that eventually led to the equalizing goal.
He continued to lead the squad admirably, despite being fatigued, and was played a huge part in keeping AC Milan from claiming a winning goal in regular and extra time.
Jerzy Dudek was battered in the first half of this game but then managed to keep Milan out for the remaining 75 minutes of the game before penalties.
Dudek made one or two stops in the waning moments of regulation and extra time, with his double save against Andriy Shevchenko standing out. He then went on to save two penalties in the shootout to help his team win.
Oliver Kahn's heroics during the 2001 Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Valencia won his side the title.
Kahn saved three penalties in the shootout to ensure the Germans a memorable cup victory.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's toe-poked goal in the dying moments of extra time gave Manchester United a great victory over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.
Patrick Kluivert completed Ajax's unbeaten Champions League season with the lone goal of the game in 1995. He came off the bench to score.
Ronald Koeman's brilliant free kick in the second half of extra time gave Barcelona its first win in the tournament after a number of close encounters.
Helmuth Duckadam saved all four penalties as Steaua Bucharest beat Barcelona on penalties in 1986.
Stevie Chalmers scored the winning goal for Celtic in 1967 to help them become the first British club to win Europe's premier competition. They beat Inter, who had won the title two years before, in the final to do so.
