UEFA cup final here we go, here we go, here we go

Middlesbrough into UEFA final after superb comeback
Thu 27 Apr, 10:01 PM

LONDON (Reuters) - Middlesbrough produced another astonishing four-goal comeback to beat Steaua Bucharest 4-2 for a 4-3 aggregate victory on Thursday and reach the UEFA Cup final for the first time.

Italian substitute Massimo Maccarone, who got the last-minute winner to beat Basel in the last round, repeated the feat with an 89th-minute header that turned a 3-0 deficit into an incredible second successive 4-3 win.

Boro looked out when goals by Nicolae Dica and Doran Goian had the Romanian visitors 2-0 up after 24 minutes but Maccarone began the comeback in the 33rd minute while a 65th minute Mark Viduka header and 73rd-minute Chris Riggott goal raised hopes among the biggest crowd of the season at the Riverside.

Maccarone's header from a Stewart Downing cross then took Boro into the May 10 final in Eindhoven where they will meet either Seville or Schalke 04, who were playing later.
