Chelsea Win Europa League With Last-Gasp Goal

Chelsea have won the Uefa Europa League final against Benfica with an injury-time goal.

Branislav Ivanovic scored in the 93rd minute to secure the 2-1 victory against the Portuguese side in the Amsterdam Arena.

Spanish striker Fernando Torres had previously given the London team the lead, before Oscar Cardozo equalised from a penalty.

The win represents a triumph for interim Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez, who has faced concerted hostility from the club's fans since his appointment in November.

It is the team's second European trophy in consecutive years, after their Champions League win in 2012.

For 10 days they will hold both titles simultaneously, before the Champions League is claimed by the winners of this year's final on May 25.
