The Spanish team continued to write their name in the history books as they became the first side to win six Europa League titles
Sevilla increased their haul of Europa League titles to six following their thrilling 3-2 victory over Inter Milan in the final of this season’s competition.
Julen Lopetegui’s side were already the competitions most successful team with five titles going into the final, and they extended the record following their win over Antonio Conte’s men.
Romelu Lukaku gave Inter the lead in the opening five minutes before Luke De Jong then levelled matters seven minutes later.
The Netherlands striker put Sevilla ahead in the 33rd minute, but the lead did not last long as Diego Godin restored parity for Inter in the 35th minute.
However, an own goal from Lukaku in the 16 minutes from time gave Los Nervionenses the win and their sixth Europa League title.
Following the victory, former Nigeria captain, Sunday Oliseh, took to his Twitter account to celebrate the achievement of Sevilla and their coach.
