Champions League first round, second leg. Copenhagen, September 29, 1993. Deep into injury time and Linfield legend Lee Doherty gives away a disputed free-kick 25 yards from goal. The Blues are trailing 2-0 on the night in Denmark but leading 3-2 on aggregate thanks to a stunning first leg display at Windsor Park a fortnight earlier.

Up steps Lars Hojer Nielsen and rockets a right footed shot into the top corner of the net. The roars from the ecstatic home support could be heard all over the Danish capital. It’s the last action before extra-time, in which Copenhagen score again to seal a stunning 4-3 triumph.
