Brighton Qualify for European Football for the first time
It is a landmark achievement for Brighton FC as the club secured qualification for European football for the first time in their history with a 3-1 win over Southampton yesterday.
A win, due to their superior goal difference, means they are all but set to finish in the Premier League top six which guarantees Europa League qualification.
Exactly 40 years since their only major final appearance in the FA Cup when defeated by Manchester United, this was a historic day for a football club that avoided relegation from the football league on the final day of the 96/97 season with a 1-1 draw that sent Hereford down on goal difference. Their rise has been astronomical under the ownership of Tony Bloom.
Huge achievement for the club, players and for the coach Roberto de Zerbi
