winger who is now the sporting director of ajax, the man, the architects of this great team together with the former man united keeper. he has said the entire squad of ajax earns in wages exactly the same as gareth bale earns at real madrid. that kind of sums up the financial situation is for a club like ajax. we cannot compete in the same race, we will have to do it our way and we will produce more great players because we have already seen that happen. et millions for barcelona, we expect more soon. after that may be more than half of this team will go to the giants, and the leaks this team will go to the giants, and the lea ks of this team will go to the giants, and the leaks of europe. nhs will have to start again. but we will do our best with the theme at this moment. we think are the way to the final. if we can beat bayern munich and real madrid, why can we not get it

0le gunnar solskjaer said it is not mission impossible. but it is not far off, is it? i say mission improbable as opposed to mission impossible. manchester united are very strong since he took over with eve ryo ne very strong since he took over with everyone available, but it is still a massive asked for that want to happen. with so many people injured, there is only one thing in the favour. that is no expectation, because of that no expectation if you relax and go enjoy, sometimes you relax and go enjoy, sometimes you can relax and play. it is a tall order. manchester united with ten players out. paul pogba suspended. as we have warned you, you need to be with us from the start. 8pm kick—off, gmt. it could be another pulsating evening in the champions league. england head coach phil neville

beth mead, one of the younger players, will be desperate to book her place at this summer's the world cup. she showed exactly why she is worth her spot with her second eye—catching goal of the tournament. after the change of ends, the lionesses continued to hunt for more goals. chioma ubogagu going closest, but they could not add to their 3—0 lead. not that it mattered. the manner of england's performance in this match and throughout the tournament underlines this team's coming of age. you enjoy moments like these. you don't get many moments in your life where you get your hands on a trophy. it is my first as a manager, the first for some of these younger players and we're going to enjoy tonight. the thing about lifting trophies is it raises expectations. but the more you get your hands on the silverware, the better you handle the pressure. let's quickly round up some of the day's other football news and scotland's women have finished fifth in the algarve cup after beating denmark 1—0 in this afternoon. the only goal of the game was from
