Camila Cabello was ‘booed’ by Liverpool fans during her opening ceremony ahead of the Champions League final.
Liverpool FC met Real Madrid CF at the Stade de France in Paris on Friday (28 May). Before kick-off, Cabello took the stage to perform a medley of four of her hits, including “Senorita” and “Don’t Go Yet.”
However, football fans were enraged by ticketing issues which resulted in thousands queuing outside the stadium. The final was postponed 36 minutes after Liverpool fans struggled to gain entry to the venue.
