Atletico lift Europa League

Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have won the Europa League for the second time in three years, beating Athletic Bilbao 3-0 in the Final.

Falcao opened the scoring with a sensational curler into the far top corner, then doubled the lead in Bucharest by turning in the six-yard box.

Former Juventus man Diego sealed it five minutes from time by bursting forward from midfield.

Simeone is a familiar face in Italy and won the UEFA Cup at Inter in 1998.
