Kaka leads Milan to Seventh Heaven Against Mis-Firing Liverpool
The Champions League Final between AC Milan and Liverpool saw Milan take the trophy for the 7th time on a night of despair and missed opportunities for Liverpool, who ultimately lacked the quality, decisiveness and ability to beat a classy and experienced Milan team. Liverpool spurned a host of chances and dominated the game for long periods, but even the heroics of captain Steven Gerrard were unable to rouse his team from their slumber, and they were defeated by the clinical finishing of Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi, wearing Diadora football boots.

As we reported, Kaka and Gerrard premiered the new Adidas Predator Absolute Champions League football boots, and were unexpectedly joined by Milan defender Nesta, who also wore the new Adidas football boot.
Champions League Final -The Football Boots
Adidas ruled the football boots in the final, with 9 players out of the 22 (41%) wearing Adidas football boots, although only 2 Milan players wore Adidas, while 7 Liverpool players sported the three stripes. Nike had 6 players wearing their football boots, with the only Nike Total 90 Laser worn by Gattuso, and we would have expected more players to be wearing this football boot due to the guaranteed massive media exposure surrounding the game. For the other football boot makers, as expected for an Italian team, Italian football boot maker Lotto were worn by 3 players, Puma were worn by 2 players (Oddo and Carragher) whilst Diadora (Inzaghi) and Mizuno (Zenden) each had a player wearing their football boots.
Champions League Football Boots Verdict
Adidas defeated all its rivals in the final match of the Champions League, as sponsor of both teams, the match ball and supplying new football boots to the two star attractions on opposite teams, guaranteeing a winning night for them. The night sees a return to form for the world’s leading football boot maker, and sends a strong message to its rivals at Nike, that there is still fight left in Adidas, and with the approaching release of the new David Beckham Predator football boots, their position as the world’s leader in terms of sales and marketing remains intact and unchallenged.
