Fulgini, the goal that exploded Bollaert (video)


By: Manu Tournoux

RC Lens validated their ticket to the Europa League, thanks to Angelo Fulgini’s goal scored in the final moments of the match against Sevilla FC (2-1).

The scenario was crazy until the end Tuesday evening at the Bollaert-Delelis stadium. Lens should not lose and above all win to secure third place in their group, synonymous with the Europa League. Mission accomplished, but we had to wait a long, very long time for the deliverance to be effective. After Frankowski opened the score from the penalty spot for the Lensois (1-0, 63rd), Sergio Ramos calmed everyone down by equalizing a quarter of an hour later, again from the penalty spot (1-1, 79th). But the Sang et Or believed in their lucky star and, on a perfect counter, Fulgini took advantage of a service from Sotoca to offer victory to his team (2-1, 90th + 6).

Completely crazy atmosphere at that moment in the aisles of a crazy stadium. On the sidelines, Franck Haise also let his joy burst forth, screaming with joy while clenching his fists very tightly and raising his arms to the sky. While PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal drew in the other match (1-1), this success allows the Lensois to continue their European route, even if it will be at the lower level, in the Europa League.
