In the 56th minute of this evening’s Europa League Final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers, the deadlock was broken as Joe Aribo pressed the Bundesliga side into making a costly mistake.
After the Scottish side launched a ball forward, one Frankfurt player headed the ball backwards, leaving Aribo to chase defender Tata like a man possessed, ultimately leaving the Frankfurt man to tumble to the floor and setting Aribo through on goal.
The 25-year-old showed excellent composure as he tucked the ball past Kevin Trapp with a tidy left-footed finish.
ARIBO IS IN, AND HE SCORES! ??
Rangers lead in the Europa League final and the travelling Glaswegians go wild! ?
