Player Report After Europa League Final: One 8, Three Times 7.5, Ample Gio

Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers turned it into a long, nerve-wracking football night, which was ultimately decided in favor of the Germans: 0-1 via Joe Aribo, 1-1 via Rafael Santos Borrรฉ and Frankfurt wins 5-4 after penalties. Football Primeur distributes report figures, also to coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Eintracht Frankfurt Kevin Trapp โ€” 8: He had hardly had anything to do, but stood there in minute 117 when it was badly needed. Frankfurt seemed to be surprised after almost two hours of playing football, but Trapp prevented a virtually certain goal for Ryan Kent. After that, he also made the difference in the penalty series.
Almamy Tourรฉ โ€” 6: It was clear that he was mainly there to stop. At the ball, Tourรฉ was not a stable factor, but in the duels it was.
Tuta โ€” 7: The Brazilian Abwehrchef, who provided rest in the back. In the first half hour, he impressed with his rest at the ball, until an unfortunate slide and associated injury ended his game prematurely.
Evan Ndicka โ€” 5,5: See Tourรฉ, but less strong on the ball. After a hundred minutes, his game was over.
Ansgar Knauff โ€” 5: He had an important role to play in Frankfurt‘s 3-4-3. Knauff did indeed constantly pose a threat from the right, but often made the wrong choice in the final phase.
Sebastian Rode โ€” 7: The former player from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, among others, went straight early in the game, with a face full of blood. After an injury treatment, he got a turban and just went back to the front of the fight.
Djibril Sow โ€” 5: The intended midfield distribution station, but Sow played an extremely unfortunate final. The ‘
assist‘ in Aribo’s opening goal came from his head.
Filip Kostic โ€” 6.5: The old acquaintance of FC Groningen is of great importance to Frankfurt with his creativity and walking ability. Not everything went well in the final, but Kostic did again with a measured assist on Santos Borrรฉ.
Jesper Lindstrรถm โ€” 5.5: The Dane has been named Rookie of the Year in the Bundesliga and proved with a single flash that he can play football. However, he did not come off really loose.
Rafael Santos Borrรฉ โ€” 7.5: Sam Lammers‘ competitor was only noticed in the first seventy minutes with a rather embarrassing schwalbe. But then the Colombian was first set up and it was immediately hit: very handsome. His winning penalty was also allowed.
Daichi Kamada โ€” 5: The Japanese played an unfortunate match. Just before 1-1, he already missed an imposed chance of equalising, having already stood in the way of an attempt by a teammate in the first half.
Invaders Makoto Hasebe โ€” 6.5: Came right after 0-1 in the field for the unfortunate Tuta. The experienced Japanese filled it neatly and observed the honors in the middle of the back silently.
Jens Petter Hauge โ€” 5: In turn, fell in for Lindstrรถm immediately after the equaliser. SC Heerenveen was once after the Norwegian, who was not happy in this final: most of his actions failed.
Kristijan Jakic โ€” x: Played the overtime as a replacement for Red and played too short for a review.
Christopher Lenz โ€” x: Solved Ndicka and played too short for a review.
Ajdin Hrustic โ€” x: The old acquaintance of FC Groningen came in for Sow and played too short for an assessment.
Trainer Oliver Glasner โ€” 7: Led VfL Wolfsburg to the Champions League last season and made Eintracht Frankfurt rise above itself in Europe as well. His 3-4-3 system is well put together, although his team lacked punching power in the final.
Rangers FC Allan McGregor โ€” 7: Forty years old and already in 2008, when the Europa League was still called UEFA Cup and Rangers had to compete against Dick Advocaat and Zenit St Petersburg in the final. On Wednesday he dragged Rangers through the first half, with a handsome save on an open chance from Knauff.
James Tavernier โ€” 6.5: The incredibly productive right-back, leading the Europa League’
s top scorer rankings. Tavernier had to go after Kostic more often than vice versa, although he got better in the game after halftime.
Connor Goldson โ€” 4.5: Once Rangers was ahead, Goldson suddenly fell through the basket. Clumsy ball loss at his own penalty area remained without consequences, but then he let the ball run just like that, allowing Santos Borrรฉ to mark the 1-1.
Calvin Bassey โ€” 7.5: One of the big stars on the field. Wherever danger came, Bassey was in between with a body part of his choice. The counterpart of Frankfurt was not his fault.
Borna Barisic โ€” 6.5: Continued to compete until he could no longer walk and stood up in character against Knauff, but is clearly not the most gifted of the bunch: the Croat wanted to panic quite a bit under pressure when he had the ball at his feet.
Ryan Jack โ€” 6: Snowed occasionallyat the bottom of the field. But when he got the ball, he usually did some good with it.
John Lundstram โ€” 7: We were just referring to the bloody face of Red, caused by a leg raised too high by Lundstram. So the central midfielder wanted to go over the edge, but could be found all over the field and grew to become the most important force among the Scots.
Glen Kamara โ€” 5: After regular playing time, he was no longer needed. The Finnish international had also left less of its mark on the busy midfield than he would like.
Scott Wright โ€” 5: When he got to the ball, there was usually a threat from him. But it was mostly barking and not biting what Wright did.
Joe Aribo โ€” 7.5: The lone front soldier, who at times managed to escape the triple man cover. What‘s called: after an hour of play, he suddenly stood free for Trapp and shot himself in the history books of Rangers.
Ryan Kent โ€” 6: Convenient, ball-tight and agile: Rangers could have him with it when it came to attack. However, much did not come out, apart from one chance where Kent shot wildly beside.
Invaders Steven Davis โ€” 6: The Northern Irish veteran fell in for Jack in the final phase and silently monitored the balance in midfield.
Fashion Sakala โ€” 5: Simultaneously took over Wright’
s spot and caused a threat in the counter with his speed. However, this did not present a great deal of concrete danger, and just before the penalty series, it was switched again.
Scott Arfield โ€” x: Fell in for Kamara in overtime and played too short for a review.
James Sands โ€” x: Came in the squad for Aribo and played too short for a review.
Kemar Roofe โ€” x: Resolved Barisic in the final phase of the extension and played too short for a review.
Aaron Ramsey โ€” x: Directed Sakala back to the bench just before time and played too short for a review, before he missed the decisive penalty.
Trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst โ€” 7: What was he allowed and what was he close to it. For Van Bronckhorst, however, the memories remain of a memorable campaign and a grueling final: Rangers had the least player material of the two finalists, but fought for every meter and refused to forsake. Gio deserves the compliments for that.
