Villarreal overcame Manchester United to win the UEFA Europa League title in a remarkable penalty shootout in which goalkeeper David de Gea missed the decisive spotkick to hand the Spanish underdogs a first major trophy.

After the teams finished locked at 1-1 following a first-half finish from Gerard Moreno and 55th-minute equalizer from Edinson Cavani, a tetchy and at times tepid encounter was settled by one of the most incredible penalty shootouts ever seen at a European final.

After both sets of outfield players had found their mark from the spot, Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli drilled his effort into the top corner before saving a tame effort from his opposite number De Gea to hand the Spaniards the title in Gdansk.
