    English football club Manchester United has won the Europa League trophy for the first time in its history, beating Ajax of Amsterdam 2-0 in the final in Sweden’s capital, Stockholm.

     

    The match went ahead as planned less than 48 hours after a bombing in United's home city which killed at least 22 people and wounded dozens of others.
