Europa League trophy stolen, then recovered in Mexico

Authorities in Mexico say the Europa League trophy has been recovered after it was briefly stolen in the central city of Leon.

The Guanajuato state prosecutor’s office said on Twitter that the trophy was reported stolen from a vehicle that was transporting it after an unspecified event in the city.

The office posted a photo of the silver cup nestled in a cloth-lined case.

It did not immediately provide more details on Friday.

In the semifinals next month, Arsenal will face Atletico Madrid and Marseille will go up against Salzburg, with the winners earning a spot in the Champions League if they can’t qualify through their domestic league.
