One year falls on the night (May 26) in which the Villarreal achieved glory in Gdanks, when rising with the Europa League title against Manchester United. A victory that came with one of the matches and finals that will always be remembered, since it was decided in the penalty shootout and after 22 pitches.
Gero Rulli was the hero one night historical, since he scored his penalty after his ten teammates had done so without fail, to which it is added that he stopped the launch of David De Gea, to make his team beat Manchester United.
A final that started with a good goal from Gerard Moreno in the first part, to be matched at the beginning of the second by Edinson Cavani. After an extra time in which Villarreal came closer to winning, the trophy was decided on penalties.
The Castellón team lined up an eleven made up of Gero Rulli as a goalkeeper, with Foyth, Albiol, Pau Torres and Alfonso Pedraza as fenders; a midfield with Capoue, Parejo, Trigueros and Yeremy Pino; to play with an attacking pair made up of Gerard Moreno and Carlos Bacca.
While Manchester United fielded David De Gea as a goalkeeper, with a defense made up of Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, and Saw. A midfield with MacTominay, Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, and Grenwood. And with a front formed by Rashford and Cavani.
A final in Gdanks attended by 2,000 yellow fans since the assistance was restricted by COVID, and in which the president Fernando Roig could not be present, as he did not overcome the quarantine imposed by UEFA.
