MADRID (AP) — Atletico Madrid fans have poured onto the Spanish capital's streets and are celebrating at Neptuno square for the first time in 14 years after their team lifted the Europa League trophy in Hamburg.

Neptuno is where Atletico's fans traditionally congregate when their team wins a title. The 2-1 win against Fulham on Wednesday is the first silverware of note for the club since 1996, when it won the Spanish league and Copa del Rey double.

Police have organized safety cordons around the square as fans arrive waving the red and white shirts and flags of Atletico.
