Man. United were dumped out of the Europa League last night at the hands of a brilliant Atheltic Bilbao team!

Bilbao dominated the game, and in the 23rd minute Fernando Llorente latched onto the end of a long ball to smash a volley past David De Gea.

Oscar de Marcos made it 2-0 in the second half with an impressive strike, before Wayne Rooney scored an 80th minute curler.

The loss means this year is the first time in ten years that Man. United have not made a cup final!
