Today will once again be an all-English UEFA Championship League final. Taking the pitch in Portugal are the Premier League champions Manchester City FC, opposing them is Chelsea FC. It’s also an interesting matchup for not just USMNT fans but for local soccer fans. Since the matchup also includes two Pennsylvania stars, Man City’s and former FC Delco and Union academy player Zack Steffen versus Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic.
This will be the first appearance in the final for Man City. As for the blues, they won the title back in 2012. That same year Chelsea would bring the title to Chester when they took on the MLS All-Stars. A game that would see the all-stars beat Chelsea 3-2.
I know what you’re thinking, enough with the history lesson and the connections to Pennsylvania. You are also probably saying Steffen won’t play because city has Ederson. That would be correct, as Ederson will no doubt be in net for the club, as Steffen backs him up. However after today one thing is for sure, an American player from Pennsylvania will win the UEFA Champions League.
