Well, worry no more as Heineken the UEFA Champions League sponsor and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand have provided a way out via the ‘Champion The Match’ ad

The video shows a fan relishing seeing the Champions League match with friends after work only to be forced to attend a conference call that evening.

Brooding, he checked his phone only to see a tweet from the United legend asking “Who’s watching the UEFA Champions League match tonight?”

In desperation the supporter replies “Stuck at work, any ideas?” — The former England defender devises a cunning plan to replace the unlucky office worker by doing ‘face-off’ — changing his face to that of the supporter.
