Rare Footage Inside The Manchester United Dressing Room After Famous Win Against Juventus In '99

"Roy Keane with a captain's goal for Manchester United!" screams commentator Clive Tyldsley, as Manchester United claw one back against heavy favourites Juventus.

"Full speed ahead Barcelona!" soon follows.

It remains one of the most historic nights in Champions League history. In the final minutes of the semi-final second leg Andy Cole celebrated with his arms aloft as Sir Alex Ferguson's side came from behind to secure a Champions League final date with Bayern Munich.

Goals from Roy Keane and Dwight Yorke leveled the scoreline and 'that' goal from Cole sealed the deal.

As we all know, despite the suspensions of both Roy Keane and Paul Scholes, the Reds went on to secure the treble in arguably the most successful season in Manchester United's long and prestigious history.

It was a special team full of special characters.

The spine of the team included the likes of Peter Schmeichel, Jaap Stam and Gary Neville, while the attacking foursome of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Teddy Sheringham, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole sank teams without trace.

But it was the overall spirit of the team, led by the great Sir Alex Ferguson, that really stood out.

Last minute goals, dogged spirit and a real togetherness in the dressing room, as displayed after the win over Juventus in Turin that night, was clearly a factor in their success.

The clip shows how much of a positive influence Dwight Yorke was in the changing room. A delighted Alex Ferguson and Bobby Charlton congratulate those inside and wild celebrations follow.

Meanwhile the reality of Champions League final suspension is etched over the faces of Keane and Scholes.

It really is a fascinating watch.

"I almost cried after looking at Keano and Scholes." said one YouTube user.

"This is so amazing. Goosebumps. They look like kids who've just been told they're going to Disneyland for the first time ever. This is why football is so amazing." wrote another.
