Real Madrid wins 2014 Champions League Final

Real Madrid has secured its 10th Champions League trophy, equalising in injury time before scoring three times in extra-time goals to beat Atletico Madrid 4-1.

Atletico Madrid took the lead with Diego Godin's 36th-minute header when Real keeper Iker Casillas blundered badly, coming off his line allowing Godin's header to gently lob over him.

Real Madrid attacked relentlessly in the second half as Atletico dropped back to defend the lead, and it took until the third minute of stoppage time before central defender Sergio Ramos headed in powerfully from a corner to equalise at 1-1.

Atletico looked a spent force in extra time and Real completed the comeback win when Gareth Bale put Real ahead in the 110th minute before Marcelo slammed in the third and Christiano Ronaldo put scored from a penalty in the final minute.
