Mohammed Salah scored inside two minutes in the first half of the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham but the biggest highlight of the half was when a swimsuit-clad Russian woman invaded the pitch.
Fans expected the game to burst into life as the early goal by the Egyptian which was the second fastest goal in the final of the competition after Paolo Maldini (00:50) for AC Milan versus Liverpool in 2005.
But the match dragged with chances far between and Spurs didn’t even have a shot on goal. According to OptaJoe, “Harry Kane had just 11 touches during the first half of the Champions League final; fewer than any other Tottenham player.”
So, it was a bit of excitement for fans when a woman, wearing a black outfit which read ‘Vitaly Uncensored’ – a Russian porn pranking website – ran onto the pitch. It is believed the woman is Kinsey Wolanski, the girlfriend of Vitaly Zdorovetskiy who runs an x-rated website.
The prankster is apprehended by stewards and escorted out of the stadium as players watch on in amazement but some of the fans wore big smiles on their faces as it was a better highlight than the boring first half.
For Spurs fans they may not have to lose hope as “Tottenham have failed to lead at half-time in any of their 13 Champions League games this season, with the Lilywhites eventually going on to win six and draw twice (L4),” according to OptaJoe.
