"World Wide Soccer," on ESPN 2, each Monday hosted by Rob Stone, features highlights and stories from around the soccer world. The show on Monday, May 24, will feature a special preview of the Champions League final at 4:30 p.m. Tommy Smyth will look at Bayern Munich and Manchester United and try to figure out who has the upper hand.
Last September, Smyth picked United to go all the way, and stuck to his guns through thick and thin. United, who just pipped Arsenal for the English Championship, will take on newly crowned German champions Bayern Munich. Smyth once again will be on hand from Barcelona as he and John Paul Dellacamera call their fifth consecutive final.
The action on Wednesday, May 26, will start with the pre-game show on ESPN at 2:30. The actual final will kick off at 2:45 and ESPN 2 will carry all the action as the champions of Europe are crowned.
