Eintracht Frankfurt won the first European trophy since 1980, beating the Rangers in a penalty shootout in the UEFA Europa League final.
After the match ended in a 1-1 draw, Frankfurt won the shootout 5-4.
Frankfurt keeper Kevin Trapp made a superb save to block Ryan Kent’s shot but missed an opportunity at the last minute of extra time.

“I’m really sorry for them (the Rangers),” said Mark Bosnich, a former Sakaro at Stan Sport.
“They will look back with a lot of regrets. Ryan Kent had that chance that Kevin Trapp miraculously saved.”
The penalty shootout is determined by one kick, the trap again saves the shot of the hero, Aaron Ramsey.
The winning team included Sakaru Ajdin Horstik, who became the first Australian since Harry Kewell in 2005 to win a major European final.
Cowell was famously injured and forced off the field after the start of that game, before Liverpool trailed 3-0 before arguably beating AC Milan in the Champions League final in history.
Hrostick will have fond memories of this final, playing a key role in the result of his penalty shootout.
“I think it’s the biggest drama in the world of sports, and it’s one of the most stressful situations,” said Craig Foster at Stan Sport.
“Of course you have heroes and villains, but it was a very high quality shootout. Even Aaron Ramsey was saved, but he got it on target.”
