The final of the Europa League, in which European soccer clubs compete, was held in Spain on the 18th, and Frankfurt, the German first division league to which Daichi Kamada and Makoto Hasebe belong, won the championship.

The Europa League is the second tournament after the European Champions League, and Frankfurt, to which Kamada and Hasebe belong, faced the final with the Scottish Premier League Rangers on the 18th.

In the match, Kamada started in the front line and Hasebe started in the 13th minute of the second half.

The match remained 1: 1 and could not be settled even in overtime, and as a result of being involved in a penalty kick, Frankfurt won 5-4 and won the second victory in 42 years since its predecessor, the UEFA Cup.

Kamada made a full appearance and succeeded in a penalty kick, and Hasebe contributed to the victory by stabilizing the defense.
