For the record 14th time in their rich, unmatched history, Real Madrid were crowned kings of the UEFA Champions League on Saturday at Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
If it would automatically be another kind of public birthday celebration in Madrid if it was Uganda.
Muzee Carlo Ancelotti’s side got a second-half goal from Vinicius Junior on one of their few chances to defeat Premier League giants Liverpool 1-0 in the final.
Jurgen Klopp’s team dominated the ball and the chances, but the best opportunity for Los Blancos in the second half resulted in the lone goal of the match. Federico Valverde played a strong ball as retired Uganda Cranes midfielder Tonny Mawejje would do to David Obua in their hey days across the box that found Vinicius Jr. at the back post for a fairly easy finish in the 59th minute, leaving the Reds shell shocked and dumbfounded just like Asyia’s secret admirers were after seeing her wedding photos with Charles “My Lord I wonder”
An outstanding performance from Thibaut Courtois!
A magical start to the UCL final with first half ending stalemate Intense, enthralling & all even at half-time more hopes still groomed over the two teams as Liverpool kept pressing even more harder towards the white lads.
What would happen in the second-half was the no optional unthinkable question looming over fans of both teams scattered allover the world, Uganda inclusive.
Courtois had already denied Liverpool twice so far and was not about to slip into err.
Throughout the whole game there was an unbelievable performance by the Real Madrid goalkeeper that later on proved to be the difference even after the additional 5 Mins.
Earlier Camila Cabello gave a memorable Opening Ceremony performance with Pepsi in full sponsorship of the Paris 2022 Uefa Champions League final in Frnace shortly before Liverpool’s coach Klopp smiled it off with Carlos Anceloti the Veteran football manager who last finished 10th with Everton before taking a flight to Santiago Bernabue that birthed this victory 12 months later.
