Preview: Champions League Final

We are just two short days away from what is sure to be a tedious, poorly refereed Champions League Final on a disastrous, last-minute pitch in cold, expensive Moscow.

Chelsea hopes to add to its nonexistent European history, while United will be seeking their first European Cup since 1999.

Some interesting subplots include: can Avram Grant win over his doubters and secure a long-term future (3 years) at Chelsea? Can Paul Scholes avoid a booking in the first 15 minutes? Will Didier Drogba do something weird? What new piece of protective equipment will Petr Cech wear? Will Andriy Shevchenko secure his Chelsea legacy with a crucial goal, or will he continue to be a huge waste of money?

Stay tuned to World Football News From the World for updates, photos, interviews, and video - all, some, or none coming within a week or two of the final whistle.
