Wembley Stadium hosted an England-Brazil friendly on Wednesday.

UEFA has priced cheaper tickets for the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium than two years ago.

UEFA was criticized in 2011 for setting "market prices'' in one of Europe's most expensive cities, and fans of Barcelona and Manchester United paid ?95 for tickets.

UEFA says prices start at 60 pounds (?70; $94) for the May 25 match. Some of the 17,000 lowest-price seats are available to neutral fans.

Top category seats cost 330 pounds (?387; $520), up from ?350 in 2011.

UEFA says fans can apply for two tickets at its website from Monday. Successful applicants will be told by April 8.

A total of 9,000 of 86,000 tickets are on general sale. The two finalists get 25,000 each for their fans.
