Europa Cup Final Compilation Show: Alaves, Alkmaar and Agony in Seville
Welcome to our UEFA / Europa Cup final clip show.
Ahead of this week’s all-English Europa Cup final in Baku, we thought we would put together some of our brilliant guests reflecting on their experiences of the competition.
We start with Kevin Bridges and the ultimate fan experience at the 2003 UEFA Cup final. Did you know Henrik Larsson performed medical miracles that night as well as score two fantastic goals? Listen up for his bittersweet experience of seeing his team, Celtic, lose in extra-time to Jose Mourinho’s Porto.
Terry Butcher takes us back to Ipswich’s 1981 UEFA Cup final win over AZ Alkmaar - a bonkers two-legged affair in which Bobby Robson’s side eventually won 5-4.
Fast forward exactly 20 years and another English side picked up the UEFA Cup with exactly the same scoreline, albeit over a one-legged extra-time match which was eventually settled by a golden goal. Gary McAllister tells the tale of Liverpool’s epic 5-4 win over Alaves from his perspective, while Jamie Carragher describes the exhausted exhilaration he felt on that famous night.
Ander Herrera then talks us his through his man-of-the-match winning performance in Manchester United’s victory over Ajax in 2017's Europa League final, before we hear from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink on Middlesbrough’s swashbuckling run to the 2006 final.
