Griezmann scores twice as Atletico wins Europa League final

Griezmann scores twice as Atletico wins Europa League final

"I hope the stadium is bouncing on Sunday-he deserves the best send-off possible".

Marseille manager Rudi Garcia said the better team had won, via the competition's official website.

The 27-year-old scored in each half in Lyons, before Gabi, the Atletico captain, struck late on to seal victory for the Spanish club.

Even so, Marseille were agonisingly close to dragging themselves back into the match when a header from Kostas Mitroglou hit the inside of the post and bounced across the face of Oblak's goal to safety. But when Anguissa's error was anticipated and pounced upon by Gabi, the locally born, boyhood Lyon fan was super cool as he tricked his France teammate Mandanda and rolled the ball nervelessly into the net. "We've known each other for almost all our lives, we have the same vision of football so whatever I'm thinking, he is thinking the same".

Atletico's build-up to this match has been overshadowed to some extent by constant speculation about his future, with the France striker being tipped to join Barcelona after the World Cup.

The science behind "Yanny" versus "Laurel"
Douglas Beck, an audiologist at Oticon, told National Geographic that there is a difference between hearing and listening. But he said it was also more hard to determine the word in this particular recording because it is "not real speech".

What do you hear? 'Yanny' vs 'Laurel' dividing the internet
Maybe the great " Yanny or Laurel " debate of 2018 will see both of these names feature more prominently in next year's rankings. But I must know, what do you hear? First of all, the clip is, according to Sanker "not prototypical" of either laurel or yanny .

This Chicago Bishop Will Be Giving The Sermon At The Royal Wedding
Born in Chicago in 1953, Curry moved to Buffalo, N.Y., one year later and grew up there, said church spokeswoman Neva Rae Fox. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have invited an American bishop to give the address at the royal wedding on May 19.

Atletico's Argentine coach Diego Simeone, who was forced to watch from the stands following a sending off during the first leg of the semi-final against Arsenal, said that it had been a "challenging season".

There is confidence in Spain that Atletico's greater collective experience of European finals will give them the edge, but Simeone has been keen to avoid too many comparisons with what has come before. Having confirmed last month that he would leave the club for a second time, it was the last opportunity for him to win a major trophy with them.

The striker missed a penalty in the 2016 Champions League final against Real Madrid which his side lost in a shootout and that made him more determined to perform against Marseille.

"When I left home at 14 years of age it was to win trophies, to enjoy nights like this".

Since the start of the 2013/14 campaign, Spanish clubs have won seven of the possible eight Champions League and Europa League trophies combined, with Manchester United's win in this competition last season being the only exception. He is the French league's top playmaker this season with 13 assists and had three goals and seven assists in the Europa League, starring in the quarterfinals and semifinals.
