Ajax starting XI not yet listed on the live blogs, but it will see only one change from the semifinal return leg, and at an average age of 22 years, 282 days, is the youngest starting XI ever to feature in a major European final.

Someone makes some unnecessary noise, and a couple of United fans flip off the offender.

Also, moment of respect from the crowd at large through applause following silence.

Teams not being static. United apply a bit of opening pressure.

Ball staying primarily in the Ajax half in these first few minutes.

United midfield doing well in stemming some of the Ajax possession. Ajax not really getting attacks in thus far.

Ajax get a bit of pressure. Ball still mostly in their half or the middle of the field.

Ajax getting a little more confident. Decent chance from them, handled by Romero.

Pogba scores in the 18th following a deflection, staking United to the early lead. Ajax 0, Manchester United 1.

Ajax continuing to get a little more time in the United half. Mkhitaryan with a foul, lucky not to get a card there.

The United goal was a by-product of pressuring Ajax on a throw-in deep in their own end. That came after a period of settling for a bit. United would do well to maintain forward momentum.

United supporters obviously were ecstatic following the Pogba goal.
