Sevilla clinched a sixth Europa League title with a roller-coaster 3-2 win over Inter Milan in Cologne on Friday night after an overhead kick by defender Diego Carlos deflected by Inter’s top scorer Romelu Lukaku settled a thrilling contest.

In the first European final ever staged behind closed doors, it was an astonishing anti-climax for Lukaku after he had earlier set the longest scoring run by a player in UEFA Cup/Europa League history by netting in the 11th successive game.
