While Kroos is now a decorated star with four Champions Leagues to his name, his first final appearance also came at 22-years-old in a defeat against Chelsea in 2012.

He really didn't take it well. Younger brother Felix told Einfach mal Luppen per Goal: "The Champions League final against Chelsea in 2012 - that was us drinking out of frustration.

"We were close to needing an emergency doctor!"

The elder Kroos then replied: "It was not a good thing but at least there was a reason for it. I remember that Jessi (Kroos's wife Jessica) then said: 'We can't do that (call a doctor) now. Imagine if it came out that I called an emergency doctor for having too much to drink!'

"There was no other way [to ease the pain of defeat]. In the end I had to call the emergency doctor myself because I thought: 'It can't be allowed to get worse than this.'"

Mount explained exactly what the success meant to him, as he reflected on the pain of previous defeats while also sending an incredibly classy message to opponents City.

"I can't put it into words, it's impossible," the England international stated with tears in his eyes.

"I've played in two finals for Chels and we lost them both, FA Cups, so the way that hurt after the game, I've dreamt as a kid of making the final and winning a trophy.

"That's what I'm all about, that's what this club is all about, I know it in and out.

"I've been here as a kid, and now, to go all the way in the Champions League.

"We've played some tough teams and now we're in a final and we won. At this moment in time, we're the best team in the world, so you can't take that away from us."
