Atletico's Europa League final hero Griezmann wants more trophies

Torres fulfils childhood dream in Europa League final

Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid celebrates his team's victory in the UEFA Europa League final.

Diego Godin nodded into the side-netting as Atletico looked to kill off the game completely. It was a slow start to the campaign, and some fans got on his back early on, but he has found his feet at the ideal time, proving decisive tonight with two finishes expected of one of the best centre forwards on the planet.

"Marseille are an attacking team".

But pressure is something Diego Simeone's Atletico relish. After leaving for Liverpool in 2007, Torres was away for Atleti's last two Europa League successes in 2010 and 2012.

"We have the chance to play at home - in our country - with a national fervour".

Simeone will also have to serve the rest of his ban at the start of Atletico's Champions League campaign next season.

Just being in this final, their 19th European game of the season, was an achievement for Garcia's team. However, Atletico hit the front midway through the first half, capitalising on some poor defending by l'OM to send Griezmann through for the opener.

Marseille had no answer to Griezmann's mobility and finishing.

Marseille's woeful defending contributed, as midfielder Zambo Anguissa failed to control a needlessly casual pass out from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and the loose ball bounced straight to Gabi.

That subdued the Marseille fans, and things got worse for them when Payet, their captain and most influential player who had been struggling with a hamstring problem ahead of the game, came off crying just after the half-hour mark.

Kostas Mitroglou, a second-half replacement for Germain, headed against a post in the closing stages (80') and Jordan Amavi's drive brought a routine save from Oblak (83') before Gabi drilled a low shot into the far corner to leave Marseille in tears (89').
