Inter facing Sevilla in Europa League final

In a warning to his players, head coach Conte said the thrill of their run to the showpiece will be soon forgotten if they fail to come away with the trophy.

Antonio Conte has backed Inter to “leave their mark on history” by sinking Sevilla in the Europa League final.

Although the former Juventus boss knows his team will be facing Europa League specialists, who won the competition in three consecutive years from 2014 to 2016, he is confident Inter can triumph in Cologne.

Inter crushed Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 in Monday’s semi-final, teeing up a shot at a Sevilla side who battled past Manchester United.
