Didier Drogba reaffirmed his big-game status again on Saturday when he scored Chelsea's equaliser against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.
The 34-year-old then hit the winning penalty in the shootout, having been unavailable four years ago in the Moscow final against Manchester United, after he was sent off for slapping Nemanja Vidic.
As Gary Neville said prior to the Ivorian striking the ball past Manuel Neuer, it was "written in the stars".
For Drogba, it was an astonishing ninth final goal. A goalscorer in four separate FA Cup finals (three of them winners), he also has four League Cup final goals to his name.
And with the Munich merriment a possible swansong to a distinguished career with the Blues, here's Drogba's final goals during his eight years in west London.
LIVERPOOL, 2005 LEAGUE CUP FINAL
ARSENAL, 2007 LEAGUE CUP FINAL
MANCHESTER UNITED, 2007 FA CUP FINAL
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR, 2008 LEAGUE CUP FINAL
EVERTON, 2009 FA CUP FINAL
