After a 36-year absence, Celtic made it to another European final and more than 50,000 fans travelled to Seville for the party



Porto shattered Celtic's hopes of winning their first European trophy for 36 years with a dramatic Uefa Cup final victory in Seville beating Celtic 3-2 (aet).  Martin O'Neill's side twice fought back from behind against the Portuguese champions on a night of searing temperatures and fluctuating fortunes, in the Olympic Stadium. But Porto snatched a late extra-time winner, with Celtic reduced to ten men after defender Bobo Balde was shown the red card.

Celtic: Douglas, Balde, Mjallby, Valgaeren (Laursen 64), Agathe, Lennon, Lambert (McNamara 76), Petrov (Maloney 104), Thompson, Sutton, Larsson.
Subs Not Used: Hedman, Sylla, Fernandez, Smith.     
Sent Off: Balde (95). Booked: Valgaeren, Lennon, Balde, Petrov.

FC Porto: Vitor Baia, Ferreira, Nuno Valente, Jorge Costa (Pedro Emanuel 71), Ricardo Carvalho, Costinha (Ricardo Costa 9), Alenichev, Maniche, Deco, Capucho (Marco Ferreira 98), Derlei.
Subs Not Used: Nuno, Cesar Peixoto, Clayton, Tiago.
Sent Off: Nuno Valente (120).

Attendance: 52,972                                                           Referee: Lubos Michel (Slovakia).


Supporters remained defiant as they praised their side's efforts in reaching the club's first European final in 36 years. An estimated 50,000 Celtic supporters created a party atmosphere in Seville as the city was swelled by what Uefa described as the largest travelling support ever to have assembled for a single game.
Despite the defeat, the legion of fans gave the team a rousing ovation after the final whistle.
