Breaking News: Villarreal beat Manchester United to win the Europa League
Europa League final
Villarreal 1-1 Manchester United
(After extra time; Villarreal win 11-10 on penalties).
Spanish side Villarreal have beaten English giants Manchester United 11-10 on penalties in the final in Gdansk to win their first European trophy. Manchester United's Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea was the only penalty taker who failed to score for the 2017 tournament winners and in the shootout. Since the tournament's inception in 2010, taking over from the former UEFA Cup, Portuguese club Porto are the only non-Spanish or non-English club to win the tournament.
I'm very much looking forward to this tomorrow night. I'll be watching it. Football's equivalent of the Super Bowl - the Champions League final. This year it's featuring two English clubs - Manchester City and Chelsea. City have never won it and Chelsea won it in 2012. City must be the favourites bit it could easily go either way.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's best player, scored twice in his first match since returning to Manchester United after 12 years, during which time he's played for Real Madrid and Juventus, to help them beat Newcastle United 4-1 in the Premier League.
Almost-European Champions England showed once again they are probably Europe's best team right now despite that Euro 2020 Final defeat on penalties to Italy by crushing Albania 5-0 to stand on the verge of qualifying for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. All the goals came in the first half, three of them by captain Harry Kane who also stands on the brink of becoming England's all-time leading goalscorer. His third goal, and England's fifth, came in stoppage time at the end of the first half and was a sublime volley. England, ranked 5th in the world, need just a point (a draw) against tiny San Marino - the lowest-ranked national football team - on Monday night to qualify for Qatar 2022.
