Well, today is the day. I cannot remember a time where there was so much pressure riding on just one game. Manchester United are in Stockholm, ready to take on Ajax in the Europa League final. The game itself isn’t going to be easy, but if we perform well, we can come out on top.
Ahead of the eagerly anticipated clash, the Manchester United players and coaching staff have been having a stroll around the Friends Arena, getting themselves ready for what is such a season-defining game.

It’s crazy that it all comes down to this. If we win, we’ve had a fantastic season but if we lose, well, we’ll never hear the end of it from rival fans. That’s just the nature of the sport we love I guess.
This is the time where our biggest stars simply have to turn up. Paul Pogba has had a mixed season, but all will be forgiven if he puts in a dominant midfield display tonight, helping us secure our first European trophy in over a decade.
A lot of pressure will be on Marcus Rashford’s young shoulders, too. Imagine being aged 19, with the main source of attacking penetration coming directly from you. I’m sure he’ll be able to cope just fine. He’s been astounding us with his brilliance ever since he broke through into the first-team.
