English football team West Ham United won the UEFA Conference League, Europe’s third-tier club tournament, held in Prague on Wednesday, with a goal from Jared Bowen in the last minute of regular time.

In the final match, the English team defeated Florence “Fiorentina”, one of the rivals of the Latvian club RFS, in the group tournament with a result of 2:1 (0:0).

This was the first European title for the East London team since winning the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1965 and was a second-tier tournament at the time. “United” has also won the FA Cup three times, most recently in 1980.

Florence players had a much better control of the ball in the first half, but the opponents made a single shot on goal. During the compensation, the goal of the English club was met by the ball recorded by Luka Jovic, but the result did not change due to the situation behind.

With the intervention of VAR in the first half of the half, it was determined that “Fiorentina” captain Cristiano Biragi touched the ball with his hand inside the penalty area and a penalty kick was given to the Italian club’s goal. “Pendeli” was performed by Saeed Benrahma, who made the score 1:0 for “United” with a powerful shot in the 62nd minute.

Five minutes later, Giacomo Bonaventura made it 1-1 with a shot from the penalty area. The teams were already approaching extra time, but in the 90th minute, Lukas Packa sent the ball through the opposing defense with a pass caught by Bowens. The English striker came alone against Pietro Terraciano and beat the opponent’s goalkeeper 2:1.

Fiorentina, who drew one match with RFS in the group stage (1-1) and won the other 3-0, took only the second place in the group and then competed in two matches with Braga from Portugal and Sivasspor from Turkey. “Lech” from Poznań and “Basel” from Switzerland.

On the other hand, the “United” players defeated the Danish “Viborg” in the “play-off” round and later placed first in their group, won all six games and started the playoffs from the second round. They beat AEK Larnaca of Cyprus, Ghent of Belgium and AZ Alkmaar of the Netherlands on the way to the final and won all but one.

In the national championships, “Fiorentina” took eighth place in Italy, and “United” took 14th place in England.

The winner of the tournament will take part in the 2023/2024 UEFA Europa League group stage, the second-tier club tournament in the Old Continent.

This was the second season of the Conference League competition. In the first season, “AS Roma” defeated “Feyenoord” Rotterdam 1-0 in the final in Tirana.
