Fulham vs Athletico Madrid in Europa League final

6:43 am on 1 May 2010

Fulham will meet Athletico Madrid in the inaugural final of European football's Europa League.

Fulham, who were in the fourth tier of English football just 13 years ago, completed their fairy-tale run to next month's final with a 2-1 second-leg win over Hamburg at Craven Cottage.

It won't be an all-English final as Liverpool beat Athletico 2-1 at Anfield but it finished 2-2 on aggregate with the Spaniards going through on away goals.
