  • LIVE - UEFA Europa League Final: Olympique de Marseille v Atl├ętico de Madrid SAD

Marseille dominated the opening stages but gifted Atletico the lead when Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa failed to control goalkeeper Steve Mandanda's pass out and Gabi intercepted before setting Griezmann free to finish neatly in the 21st minute. Now we are in the UEFA Super Cup, so he could play four finals with us.

The mood inside the stadium swung completely with the goal, and things fell even further Atletico's way when Marseille's best player, Dimitri Payet, was soon forced off injured.

Torres, 34, is due to leave his boyhood club this summer - and finally won his first trophy at Atletico in his 403rd appearance. "Firstly, we had the best chance to go ahead, and secondly an error from us meant we fell behind", said Garcia.

A chance to renew the intrigue in "Marseille" was on the 80th minute, however, Mitroglou, winning the aerial duel with Godin that hit the post.

The France global has been persistently linked with a move away from the Wanda Metropolitano, with Barcelona reported being among his biggest admirers. "He's given us a lot, he gave us a leap in quality as a team".

"I've been working to experience such a moment for many years", Griezmann said after the match.

Team Diego Simone scored three unanswered goals in the gate "Marseilles" and became the victor of the Europa League of the season 2017-2018.

Japan's longest run of economic growth in almost 30 years is over
Japan's exports to the US could suffer, and indirectly its economy will likely take a hit, if China's exports to the USA fall. Nominal GDP was down 0.4% on quarter, missing expectations for a gain of 0.1% following the 0.1% gain three months earlier.

"I am sure we will be the same and I'm sure we will return to another final to try to win again", he said. He's played three finals with us and won two.

The scoreline mirrored the Spanish side's last Europa League final win over Athletic Bilbao in 2012 and cemented their status as one of the continent's most consistent teams since Argentine coach Diego Simeone transformed their fortunes.

Simeone, who had to watch from the stands due to a touchline ban, called the victory a reward for his side's hard work and even expressed hope that Griezmann could be convinced to stay.

"We've reinvented ourselves in this competition, and against Arsenal (in the semi-finals) we showed what we're all about".

"I left home when I was 14 years old because I wanted to win trophies, this is my second and I hope I can win more".

"If he stays I'll be delighted and if he leaves I'll be grateful for everything he's done for us".
