Real Madrid deserves a special award

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon said UEFA should give the club a special award in recognition of its efforts to return in matches and reach the Champions League final for the 17th time, including the old European Cup.

"I think UEFA should give us a really special trophy for what we've achieved in these three matches," Calderon added. "It's amazing. I don't think it's happened before. I hope UEFA will take that into consideration."

On the streets of Madrid, discussions are still going on about the amazing match.

"Never lose hope when it comes to Real Madrid," said fan Maria Jose Gomez. "I changed channels every 5 seconds so I wouldn't die of fear. On top of that, I could hear the roar of the stadium from my house and I lived two kilometers away."
