1:27 pm on 21 May 2009

The Ukrainian football club Shakhtar Donetsk has won the UEFA Cup beating Werder Bremen of Germany 2-1 in the final in Istanbul.

The score was level at the end of regulation time, before Brazilian Jadson struck the winner to help Shakhtar become the first Ukranian Ukrainian team to win a major European trophy since the break up of the Soviet Union.

The UEFA Cup will become the Europa League next season, a revamped competition UEFA hopes will enhance the image and profile of European football's second-tier tournament.
