Eintracht Frankfurt has won the Europa League.

The international press comments on the final drama against Glasgow Rangers.

Seville - The fairy tale comes true!

Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League, the SBU prevailed in the most dramatic way possible on a magical night in Seville: the penalty shoot-out brought the decision, the Adler won against Glasgow Rangers in the end 6:5.

The game already had one or the other madness to offer during regular time: Captain Sebastian Rode had his head slashed open after five minutes, John Lundstram had caught him with the cleat after a risky entry.

Rode was bleeding profusely, but anyone who knows the midfield engine knew immediately: he won't let this finale go to him!

And so Turban-Rode continued to work, experienced Tuta's slip, which led to 0:1 through Joe Aribo (57th) and Rafael Santos Borré's response to a fantastic cross from Filip Kostic (69th).

The 1-1 lead went into extra time, where Kevin Trapp made a sensational save shortly before the end of regular time - and finally became the hero of the final on penalties when he saved against Aaron Ramsey.

At the SGE, all five shooters scored.

Then all the dams broke.

They had waited fifty years for a European trophy;

who knows how long they'll have to wait for another chance."
