Wembley promises perfect pitch for Champions League final

The chairman of Wembley David Bernstein said on Thursday that "The pitches of Wembley Stadium for this season's Champions League final will be in perfect condition."

Lot of critics had been heard following the stadium's re-opening in 2007 but the pitch has improved dramatically this season following a series of new innovations.

"We did have some well-publicised issues surrounding the pitch. But I can say with total confidence they are all behind us," Bernstein said after UEFA unveiled the branding for the match.

"The new system installed in the latter part of this year has been outstanding and been complimented on by managers and the players who have used it.

"We are confident it will be of the highest standard for the Champions League final and worthy of Europe's top two teams."

He also told Reuters: "I am confident the pitch will be in outstanding condition. There is no non-football related actvity, no concerts or anything on the pitch in the months leading up to the final. The stadium will be a fitting venue for the biggest match in club football."

England 1-2 France Wembley Stadium

England suffered defeat to France in an entertaining friendly encounter at London's Wembley Stadium on Wednesday 17 November, winning 2–1.

England were exposed by the superior movement and technique of Laurent Blanc's French side, who won the game after goals from Karim Benzema and Mathieu Valbuena did enough to render Peter Crouch's late strike incosequential.

Capello fielded a side that included debutants Jordan Henderson and Andy Carroll, as well as left-back Kieran Gibbs, who made his first England start in the game.
The first chance would come from a veteran, though, as Steven Gerrard hit a free kick from 30 yards straight at Hugo Lloris in the second minute.

Seven minutes later, Chelsea's Florent Malouda got France's first chance, producing a low strike towards Ben Foster's far corner that the keeper collected with ease.
Yoann Gourcuff then picked up a nervous clearance by the English defence, firing a hard strike that Foster could only put behind for a corner kick.
