Football fans across the world worship their teams literally and would do anything to see their favourite teams win matches and trophies.

The UEFA Champions League is one of the most watched competitions in the world and the action did not disappoint on Wednesday night.

A Kenyan diehard Manchester United fan sent social media into a frenzy after offering his wife to a friend if Paris Saint Germain would have beaten United.

Game Yetu came across a note posted by Moses Kamoet on Facebook’s Kilimani Mums and Dads Uncensored page confirming that he was not under influence when he made the bold step.

“I Moses Kamoet Kimeto solemnly swear that should PSG win against Man United in UEFA Champions League, that I will voluntarily give my wife to Brian Kiprotich for one week. I was not under any influence to come to this decision,” the note read.

United went into the match with almost zero chance of progressing but did the unexpected by edging out their opponents courtesy of a brace by Romelu Lukaku and a stoppage-time penalty by Marcus Rashford.

PSG thought they had the tie in the bag after a 2-0 win at Old Trafford but quickly fell behind after some sloppy defending.

They quickly restored parity through Juan Bernat but a mistake by experienced Italian keeper Gianluigi Buffon handed the Red Devils a lifeline before the break.

United were without a host of regular starters and played a makeshift midfield that was, in all honesty, overrun by the French champions.

However, a minute into stoppage time, Diogo Dalot’s ambitious shot from just outside the box appeared to hit the arm of Presnel Kimpembe, prompting the referee to seek the assistance of VAR.

After a moment of anxiety for both sets of fans, Damir Skovina pointed to the penalty spot and a nervy-looking Rashford expertly dispatched the spot-kick past Buffon.

The game went deep into stoppage time but after the final whistle, it was jubilation for Man Utd fans around the world and despair for PSG.

The winner of the UEFA Champions League qualifies for the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
