On the first Saturday of summer, on the 3rd of June in Cardiff the final of the Champions League 2017 will take place. According to a very old tradition the ambassador of final football match is chosen among the most famous and honorable football players of the host country.
This time the ambassador of the final match of the Champions League will be the legendary Welsh forward of Liverpool (1980-1997) Ian Rush. On Friday, 17th of March during the time of draw of ¼ finals of CL thanks to Mr. Rush we have got the following pairs of ¼ finals:
Atlético Madrid (Spain) – Leicester (England)
