'Is It From An Old FIFA?' - The Baffled Reaction To The Europa League Final Camera Angle

The Europa League final has hardly been without its controversies this year. Not only did the selection of Baku in Azerbaijan as the leave both sides unable to fill their allocation of tickets, it also meant Arsenal playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan had to stay at home for fears over his safety.

But once the game kicked off on Wednesday night, all of that would be forgotten as two of the biggest clubs in the world face off for a chance at a European trophy.

But Uefa being Uefa, things are never that straight forward.

With the smoke still settling from the opening ceremony nobody cared about, fans were given their first look at the camera angle through which they would have to watch the game.

While fans of the Premier League are used to a more intimate broadcast angle, Wednesday night's Europa League decider looked more like someone had been messing around with the settings on FIFA than the official broadcast from a major European final.

Needless to say, supporters immediately took to Twitter to share their bemusement with it all.
