It was the evening that Jose Mourinho truly introduced himself to English football fans.

Back in 2004, Mourinho brought his Porto side to Old Trafford protecting a 2-1 lead in their Champions League last 16 clash with Manchester United.

The Portuguese tactician and his team looked to be heading out on the away goals rule as they trailed to Paul Scholes' first-half goal with just minutes remaining.

But Costinha then popped up to fire home a late, late equaliser that prompted what has gone down as one of the most famous celebrations in football... Mourinho charging from the dug-out and racing provocatively down the touchline to celebrate with his players.

With Mourinho and Ferguson preparing to do Champions League battle again next week as Manchester United take on Real Madrid, enjoy the highlights from this iconic match nine years ago.
