This week’s Throwback Thursday – sponsored by the World of Cars – are Pompey’s two goals against the mighty AC Milan in 2008.

Younes Kaboul grabbed the first for The Blues just after the hour mark, with Kanu – the man who scored the goal in the FA Cup Final against Cardiff that gave them European football – doubling the advantage soon after.

Talk before the game had been that Milan were not relishing the prospect of a wintry evening at Fratton Park.

And it looked like Portsmouth were going to pull off a famous victory until Filipo Inzaghi’s late, late equaliser, after Ronaldinho’s sizzling free-kick six minutes from time.

Although denied that famous win, their fearless performance against the likes of Gattuso, Shevchenko, Kaka et al still make it a fixture firmly enshrined in the club’s history, and one of the all-time great Fratton Park occasions.
