Atletico Madrid beat Fulham 2-1 in Europa League Final

Diego Forlan scored with just four minutes of extra time remaining to give Atletico Madrid a 2-1 win over Fulham in today's Europa League final.

Forlan got his second goal of the game when he flicked Sergio Aguero's cross under his standing leg, the ball rolling past goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer via a deflection off Fulham defender Brede Hangeland.

Man-of-the-match Forlan, who also hit the post and put Atletico ahead in the 32nd minute, was the only Atletico player not to celebrate at the final whistle as the club won its first trophy since the Spanish league and cup double in 1996.

The Uruguay international instead shook hands with the exhausted Fulham players, who had been trying to clinch the west London club's first major title.

Goals :
Atletico Madrid - Forlan 32, 116
Fulham ---------- Davies 37
