Spanish football club Sevilla was crowned 2020 UEFA Europa League champions Friday with a 3-2 win against Italy’s Inter Milan.
It has become habit for Sevilla to win the title as it is the most successful team in the second tier of Europe’s elite club competition, having won the trophy five times in the past 15 years.
With the 2020 triumph, Sevilla has won all six Europa League finals in which they appeared.
Inter took an early lead in the final as Belgian star Romelu Lukaku converted a penalty in the German city of Cologne.
Sevilla quickly responded in the twelfth minute as Dutch forward Luuk de Jong found Inter’s net with a diving header to beat Slovenian goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
De Jong has become the first Dutch player to score in a Europa League final since 2002, after Pierre van Hooijdonk did it 18 years ago.
In the 33rd minute, De Jong made it 2-1 for Sevilla with another header.
