Diego Carlos' 74th-minute stunning goal was all that Sevilla needed to win their sixth Europa League title.

The Spanish League side defeated Inter Milan 3-2 in the final of the European championship and ended their season with a crown.

It was Romelu Lukaku who drew the first blood from the spot-kick just five minutes into the encounter.

The Belgian powered a low shot into the bottom left corner of the post which went slightly past goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.

Luuk de Jong restored parity for the La Liga side through a stunning flying header from close range after connecting with Jesus Navas' cross from the right side.

The 29-year-old pushed his side ahead for the first time in the game with another unstoppable header in the 33rd minute.

Argentine star Ever Banega sent a long cross into Inter's danger zone and almost free De Jong grabbed his brace with the first half fast running to an end.

But, Diego Godin came from his defensive position head Inter back into the game with Marcelo Brozovic claiming the assist for his side's second goal.

By the end of the opening half, both sides had scored four stunning goals but it was Carlos' overhead kick that made all the difference in the end.

Briefly.co.za earlier reported that Man United has hit its all-time low in terms of winning trophies following their painful Europa League exit at the hands of Spanish side Sevilla.

The Red Devils surrendered a one-goal lead to lose to the La Liga club by 2-1 which wrapped up their campaign without a title.

This is the first time United have gone without a trophy for three straight years in the last 31 years.
