Thousands of Manchester United fans at a venue near Old Trafford celebrated their team's 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm on Wednesday (May 24).
There were wild cheers, flag waving and beer-throwing as Man U took the trophy.
Jubilant fans said it was not only a sporting victory, but a victory over terrorism after Monday night's suicide bombing.
"Whether Ajax had won or United had won, football has won. The freedom of the world has won," said one man.
