Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played the super sub role once again for Manchester United as the manager wound back the years in the Treble Reunion clash with Bayern Munich.
Fans young and old descended on Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon - 20 years to the day since sealing Champions League glory in such spectacular fashion at the Nou Camp.
Solskjaer again started on the bench but wasted little time after coming on for Andy Cole, turning home the opener after Dwight Yorke was superbly stopped inside four minutes.
There was a real feelgood factor in the air, with David Beckham firing cross-field balls, Jaap Stam showing no mercy at the back and Paul Scholes bossing the midfield.
Solskjaer went off midway through the first half and skipper Peter Schmeichel followed suit shortly after Dwight Yorke scored a superb second for United Legends.
Changes aplenty punctuated the second half rather than goals, with Stam, Scholes and Denis Irwin among those to be replaced to rapturous applause.
Neville went close to notching for United Legends, who looked to be getting under their Bayern counterparts' skin at times.
Nicky Butt netted United's third of the afternoon 11 minutes from time as he coolly stabbed home a Louis Saha cross.
Substitute Saha - one of the handful of non-treble winners - slotted home the fourth in the 85th minute as he turned home a Jonathan Greening cross in front of the Stretford End.
There was a crowd-pleasing end to proceedings as Beckham got behind the Bayern backline and showed quick feet before firing home in front of the Stretford End.
Ferguson on the United bench applauded after Beckham scored with the last kick of the match - a 5-0 win played out in front of a 61,000 crowd, raising key funds for the Manchester United Foundation.
