Champions League 25th Anniversary - Week 1 - Manchester United 6-2 Fenerbahce 


The Champions League returns this week and we are celebrating it here at ITV Sport Archive by going through our vault to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

Not many group games have been more memorable than Wayne Rooney’s Manchester United debut against Fenerbahce back in 2004. Rooney hadn’t played since coming off injured for England during the 2004 European Championships, but just over two months later he marked his return in style. The ITV cameras were there to see a truly unforgettable match at

Old Trafford.
