Anselmo Ralph relishing Lisbon performance

International R&B star Anselmo Ralph will perform after Thursday's final at Lisbon's Estádio do Restelo and speaks to UEFA.com about that honour and his love for SL Benfica.

When either Tyresö FF or VfL Wolfsburg lift the UEFA Women's Champions League trophy at Lisbon's Estádio do Restelo on Thursday night, the party will not be over.

After the cup is awarded, ticket holders will then be invited to enjoy a concert at the stadium by international R&B star Anselmo Ralph. The Angolan-born singer has a huge following in Portugal and is looking forward to the occasion.

"It's definitely an honour for me to be at the final, because it's quite an important event," he told UEFA.com. "To be part of this event, this party, is an honour for me and I feel proud that the producers have chosen and invited an artist like me. So I feel very lucky, above all. Most of my fans are from all over the world, so to be in a final of the Women's Champions League is definitely the cherry on the cake."

Tickets are €10 per person and can be purchased online via the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) website.
