Eintracht Frankfurt wins Europa League in throwback of a final

SEVILLE, Spain — In 2012, Kevin Trapp was sent off after 19 minutes of his Eintracht Frankfurt debut. On Wednesday, the goalkeeper, now 31, etched his name in club lore for the right reasons, emerging as a hero on a night when the German club once again became a European champion. Trapp made a startling kick save in the final minutes of extra time to take the UEFA Europa League final vs. Scottish power Rangers to penalties after a 1–1 draw. Trapp, inevitably, made the decisive save in the shootout, blocking Aaron Ramsey’s weak effort with his legs as Frankfurt lifted the second European trophy in its history and first in 42 years at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
