The Champions League Final is always one of the most important days of the football season. This year even more with five Argentine players participating in the Final.
A huge day for both Inter and Bayern Munich. Both clubs will be looking to become European Champions and win their third title of the season.
It will be a history making day for whichever club wins today.
I’ve been rooting for Inter from the start of this season’s Champions League. Will be doing so even more today.
It is not just a numbers game for me with Inter having four Argentine players and Bayern just one.
I want Inter to win so that el Pupi Zanetti can finish his Inter career in grand style. Zanetti’s contract has already been extended to next season but a Champions League win would be the crowning achievement for Il Capitano.
I also want to see el Cuchu Cambiasso win the Champions League. Cambiasso has played an important part in Inter’s success since joining the club in 2004. Cambiasso is the heart and tactical mind of Inter’s midfield.
Both players are considered very important, absolutely essential and influential leaders by one of the best managers in the world, Inter manager Jose Mourinho but they are not thought of in the same manner by Argentina’s manager.
I won’t even get into both players exclusion from the world cup squad.
Winning the Champions League will not make up for missing out on the World Cup but I really hope that Zanetti & Cambiasso play great today and make history.
Samuel and Milito have also played an important part in Inter’s success. Walter Samuel has anchored Inter’s backline playing in superb form all season in every tournament that Inter has participated in.
Diego Milito’s first season with Inter has been fantastic, not only is Milito Inter’s top goal scorer this season, he has also scored clutch goals in every tournament that Inter’s played in.
Milito has come through often when Inter has needed a game winning goal.
I hope Milito will score again today to help Inter win another important game.
Martin Demichelis will be defending the Bayern shirt today.
Demichelis has played well this season and is a solid presence in Bayern’s backline. I wish him well today and hope he continues to show improved form as he continues to recover from his recent injury.
But today, for me, it is all about Inter.
