Diego Forlán admitted he feared Club Atlético de Madrid had spurned their chances of playing in the inaugural UEFA Europa League final before he struck the 102nd-minute goal that took his team past Liverpool FC on away goals. "Yeah, I feared the worst," he said, reflecting on how Yossi Benayoun had given the hosts a 2-0 lead in extra time to edge Liverpool ahead in the tie. "It became 2-0 but we knew we only needed one goal and kept going."
