Arjen Robben scored in the 89th minute Saturday to give Bayern Munich a 2-1 win over German rival Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, ending four years of frustration for his team in Europe’s biggest tournament.
Robben ran on to Franck Ribery’s backheeled flick-on in the area and calmly slotted the ball past goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller to give Bayern its first Champions League victory since 2001. The German team had lost two of the last three finals, including on penalties to Chelsea last year in its own stadium in Munich.

Ben Watson headed in the winner in the 90th minute at Wembley Stadium from Shaun Maloney’s corner after City, six minutes after City defender Pablo Zabaleta was sent off.
“The boys were fantastic and they deserve it,” Watson told the BBC. “To come on and score the winner in the FA Cup final is a dream.” (Photos: Shaun Botterill/Getty Images, Andrew Yates/AFP/Getty Images)
