Eintracht Frankfurt won their first European trophy since 1980, beating Rangers in a penalty shootout in the UEFA Europa League final.

“I’m terribly sorry for them (Rangers),” former Socceroo Mark Bosnich said on Stan Sport.

“They will look back with great regret, Ryan Kent had this chance that Kevin Trapp saved, miraculously.”

The penalty shootout was decided by a kick, with Trapp again the hero, saving Aaron Ramsey’s shot.

On the winning side, Socceroo Ajdin Hrustic became the first Australian since Harry Kewell in 2005 to win a major European final.

Kewell was notoriously injured and forced off the pitch after starting that game, before Liverpool came from 3-0 down to defeat AC Milan in arguably the greatest Champions League final in history.

Hrustic will have fond memories of that final, nailing his penalty in the shootout to play a key role in the outcome.

“I think it’s the biggest drama in world sport, and it’s one of the most stressful situations,” Craig Foster said on Stan Sport.

“Of course you have heroes and villains, but it was a very high quality shootout. Even Aaron Ramsey got saved, but he got on target.”
