Italian team AS Roma have won the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League after beating Dutch giants Feyenoord in a close encounter. This is manager’s Jose Mourinho first trophy with his new team and his fifth ever European trophy win. This win also made him the first ever manager to win all three UEFA club competitions (Champions League, Europa League and Conference League). This is also a historic night for Romanisti since it’s their first trophy in 14 years.

The game went how you would expect any Jose Mourinho final to go. Roma looked defensively solid and tried to counter attack the possession hungry Feyenoord. Their plan succeeded in the 32nd minute when fan favourite Nicolo Zaniolo managed to beat the keeper after a superb pass from none other than center back Gianluca Mancini.
After the opener, Roma’s game plan was quite clear. The Giallorossi wanted to kill the game off, defending with all their lives against Feyenoord’s prolific and tricky attack. In the second half Feyenoord had multiple chances to find an equalizer but somehow couldn’t manage to find the back of the net. Roma’s and Mourinho’s risky plan worked out as after 95 minutes, the Roma fans, staff and players erupted into insane celebrations befitting the magnitude of the success.
