Conference League Final: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

Roma won their first major European title in more than 60 years after a 1-0 victory over Feyenoord in the UEFA Europa Conference League final in Albania.

Iran PressEurope: Roma, whose only previous continental title was the old Fairs Cup in 1961, held off a spirited comeback from their Dutch opponents, who were twice denied by the woodwork in the second half, and ensured that Jose Mourinho became the first manager to win a European trophy with four different clubs.

The 22-year-old Nicolo Zaniolo steered the ball home in the 32nd minute with a left-footed flick, after first taking it down on his chest, to make Roma inaugural winners of European football’s new third-tier club competition.

The Roma managed to help up to five fingers at the full-time whistle, making sure everyone was fully aware of the five continental titles in his trophy cabinet.
