Falcao fires Porto to Europa League glory


Columbian striker Radamel Falcao scored a stunning header to settle the Europa League final in Porto’s favour with a narrow 1-0 win over Sporting Braga at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Wednesday.

The 25 year old netted his 17th goal of the competition and 38th of the season just before halftime after timing his run to perfection to meet Fredy Guarin’s cross.

This win sees Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas become the youngest coach to win the competition at 33 years of age.
