I don't understand how soccer's governing authorities allowed this to happen, but a team in the final of the most prestigious annual soccer tournament - the Champions League - is a team that only barely qualified for the tournament. AC Milan were convicted for fixing matches in 2006. They only qualified when their penalty was reduced on appeal, thus enabling them to participate in the Champions League.
To me this just stinks and I really hope this club doesn't end up winning in the final. I was rooting for Manchester United last night and I'll be rooting for Liverpool on May 23.
