The Spanish football club Sevilla has won its first European football title by beating Middlesbrough of England, 4-0, in the UEFA Cup final in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Enzo Maresca scored two goals for the Spaniards, in the 78th and 84th minutes. Luis Fabiano opened the scoring in the 27th minute, sending the ball in off the post after taking a cross from Daniel.
Frédéric Kanouté scored the fourth goal when he tapped in a rebound just one minute from time. Middlesbrough could not find the offense it needed to rebound from the deficit.
The match was the first of two Anglo-Spanish finals. Barcelona faces Arsenal next Wednesday in the Champions' League final at the Stade de France outside Paris. Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
