Sevilla beat Inter Milan in the Europa League final to set a fantastic record in the history of this competition. 

This is the 6th trophy for the Spanish side and they are truly called the kings of Europa League/UEFA Cup. 

Despite conceding an early goal from Romelu Lukaku, Julen Lopetegui’s side was strong enough to answer with two headers from Luke de Jong, the striker that rarely scored this season. 

Diego Godin equalized 10 minutes before the half time to become the 6th player in history to register his name on the scoresheet for both Champions League and Europa League finals. 

But there was another unlikely hero for Sevilla, Diego Carlos, one of genius sporting director Monchi’s signings, that decided to hit the ball with a bicycle kick. The shot was going wide, but Romelu Lukaku’s leg changed the direction of the shot and gave Sevilla the lead they wanted. 

Inter had a chance to win a European trophy for the first time in 10 years, but they were not lucky enough to do so.

Chelsea are in advanced negotiations with Thiago Silva: Havertz and Chilwell also close in on signing with the Blues
