Fulham were beaten 2-1 by Atletico Madrid in the Europa League final on this day in 2010.
Diego Forlan’s winner late in extra-time brought the London club’s Europa League adventure to a heartbreaking end.
Roy Hodgson’s side provided shocks in the competition to reach the final – beating Juventus and Shakhtar Donetsk along the way – but were denied a first European trophy by an Atletico side which contained the likes of Sergio Aguero, Jose Antonio Reyes and David De Gea.
Both sides failed to make an impression or create any quality chances in the second period and the match was all square at the end of normal time.
Extra-time was needed for a result and the winning goal came in the 116th minute.
“I thought the game was heading for penalties,” said Hodgson.
“I know they are a lottery but we fancied our chances. Then Forlan popped up with a second and we had no time to recover.
“Everyone wants to finish first but at this level of achievement, after 63 games, second is something we can be very proud of as well.”
