The 89th minute at Wembley: Franck Ribéry connects to a long ball from Jérôme Boateng, conjuring up a cunning back-heel to set up Arjen Robben.

Friday marks the five-year anniversary of the moment every Bayern fan remembers. On 25 May 2013 Robben made it 2-1 in an emotional and thrilling Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, making himself immortal for the Bayern faithful.
