UCL, UEL, and UECL all won… and leg tattoos are a hot topic.
Emerson Palmieri has won all three competitions organised by the European Football Association (UEFA).
West Ham United defeated Fiorentina 2-1 in the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) final of the 2022-23 season at the Eden Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, at 4am on 8 August. It was West Ham’s first European title in 58 years.
The match was tight. The first shot of the game came from West Ham. Less than a minute into the game, Michail Antonio opened the scoring with a shot from the edge of the box. Fiorentina responded with a goal from Giacomo Bonaventura in the eighth minute of the first half. The game remained close throughout the first half, but the score remained 0-0 at the break.먹튀검증
The goal finally came in the second half. In the 12th minute of the second half, Jerrod Bowen controlled the ball in the box, but the ball hit Cristiano Biraghi in the hand and a penalty kick was awarded. Said Benramar stepped up to the spot and calmly converted to give West Ham the lead. Fiorentina, having taken the reins of the attack, soon levelled. In the 21st minute, Bonaventura picked up the ball in the box and rattled the net with his shot.
The game was settled in the closing stages of the second half, when Bowen found himself one-on-one with the keeper in the 44th minute and calmly fired a shot that went straight into the net. The Hammers went on to win the tournament thanks to Bowen’s dramatic winner. It is 58 years since the Hammers won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1964-65 and 42 years since they won the English Championship (Second Division) in 1980-81.
With this victory, a player has now won the UEFA Champions League (UCL), UEFA Europa League (UEL) and UECL in all three competitions organised by UEFA. Emerson. Emerson lifted the UEL trophy in 2019 while playing for Chelsea, then two years later he was crowned champion of the UCL, and two years after that he was crowned champion of the UECL.
The local buzz is whether Emerson will get the UECL trophy as a tattoo. Emerson has both the UEL and Euro 2020 trophies inked on his right calf, and while there seems to be little room for a new trophy, it would be a shame to leave the UECL trophy out.
