Atletico Madrid's Diego Forlan struck twice, the second four minutes from the end of extra time, to decide the first UEFA Europa League final in Hamburg.
Atletico Madrid 2-1 Fulham (AET)
Diego Forlan struck with four minutes of extra time remaining as Atletico Madrid ended a 48-year wait for major continental silverware, beating Fulham 2-1 in the inaugural UEFA Europa League final. There had been little to choose between the sides throughout. Forlan and Simon Davies exchanged first-half goals then, as fatigue set in, they matched each other for endeavour. Yet as those around him tired the Uruguayan international gained energy. With the lottery of a penalty shoot-out looming, he did just enough to divert Sergio Ageero's cross into the far corner via Brede Hangeland. The wait was over.
