[VIDEO PICK] Chelsea became the first club from London to win Europe's biggest trophy as it captured the UEFA Champions League with a shootout win over favored Bayern Munich.

TRIVIA. Bayern Munich had a 20-1 edge in corner kicks, but Chelsea's lone corner kick produced the tying goal in the 88th minute.

CHELSEA REACTION. “I wanted to make Chelsea smile." -- Didier Drogba, whose late goal sent the game to overtime and whose penalty kick won the shootout for Chelsea.

BAYERN MUNICH REACTION. ''If you wish me to say something about Roberto di Matteo, it is that Chelsea should give him a three-year contract. Chelsea played the way we thought. We must blame ourselves for having so many goalscoring opportunities without being able to score until the 83rd minute.'' -- Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes on whether his Chelsea counterpart, the interim manager, should be given the job on a permanent basis.

WHAT'S NEXT. Chelsea's title is good fortune for MLS and organizers of the World Football Challenge. The Blues will play in the 2012 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 25 in Chester, Pa. They will also be playing in the World Football Challenge with games against the Seattle Sounders on July 18 at CenturyLink Field Paris St. Germain at New York's Yankee Stadium on July 22 AC Milan on July 28 at SunLife Stadium in Miami.
