They Are The Champions.

A day before our visit to Liverpool, the FC Liverpool football team was honored in the city for winning the Champions Leage 2019.
The Champions made a triumphal tour of the city, where remnants of it were still visible here and there.

A few weeks before our visit we were a bit worried about this day and feared if Ajax had won the Champions Leage at the expense of FC Liverpool (and at that time no one in the Netherlands doubted that) we wouldn’t probable be permitted to visit the city.

May 8, FC Liverpool had sensationally knocked out Barcelona the day before.
Ajax played against Tottenham Hotspurs, had won the away match 0-1. At home it was 2-0 at half time. Not cloud in the air and Ajax was almost certainly in the final of the Champions Leage and the “God sons” would certainly beat Liverpool.

However, things turned out differently and Tottenham reached the final by scoring 2-3 in the dying seconds of the game and still reaching the final. Liverpool quite easily won the final in Madrid 2-0.
Our visit was secured, but Ajax was an illusion poorer.
