Arjen Robben's late goal dramatically ended FC Bayern München's UEFA Champions League final misery after a thrilling all-German contest against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

Bayern started with four players – Robben, captain Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Müller – who had endured the final defeats of 2010 and 2012, but it took a player in his first season in Munich, Mario Mandžukić, to supply the 60th-minute breakthrough after both sides had missed a series of chances. İlkay Gündoğan's penalty swiftly levelled matters – the first goal Bayern had conceded in the competition in 432 minutes – yet it was Bayern who looked more likely to snatch a late winner. So it proved in the 89th minute as Robben wriggled through to take the trophy to Munich for the fifth time.

Reaction

I am proud of my team but at the moment it's the disappointment that prevails. That's normal. When you strive for something and don't get it, it hurts.

Today my team were determined to win. We have 22 or 23 top-class professionals and they've all pulled their weight. When you have such high-calibre players, that's pretty incredible and that's a hallmark of our success.
