Pitch Will Be Ugly But Fine, Says UEFA

Reports say that the turf, imported from Slovakia, has not yet recovered from transportation and it looks like it's been laid down too late to be perfect in time for the match.

It looks pretty ugly and brown, and that's not just a rumour: even UEFA admitted.

'We are slightly worried about the look of it. In terms of the quality, we have made some tests in the last few days and it is perfectly fine,' UEFA director of communications William Gaillard said.
