Gameiro ‘plays for this moment’

Kevin Gameiro says moments such as Sevilla’s Europa League semi-final win over Shakhtar Donetsk are why he plays football.

Gameiro scored twice in the 3-1 victory on the night, a 5-3 triumph on aggregate, with Los Rojiblancos now playing Liverpool as they seek a third consecutive trophy.

“This is great. We play football for these moments. It’s a big night, the third straight final. I’m very happy for the club, the team and for the people of Seville,” Gameiro said post-match, Marca reports.

“I’m very happy and I don’t know that I can want more. It’s a dream. Three successive finals is very difficult. We’ll give everything to enjoy it. We have the mentality that we play as a team, we all think alike.”
