Sports: Brighton secures European football qualification for the first time ever


By The TopNewsng

Brighton and Hove Albion ensured they will play in Europe next season for the first time in their history after beating Southampton 3-1 at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday, with teenage striker Evan Ferguson scoring twice.


Brighton are sixth on 61 points and can no longer be caught by eighth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, meaning they are guaranteed a spot in Europe next season either in the Europa League or the Europa Conference League.

Two first half goals from the Irish teenager, Evan Ferguson placed Brighton in pole position before Mohammed Elyounoussi pulled one back for Southampton in the 58th minute

Any hopes of a comeback were quickly snuffed out by Pascal Gross, who cut inside onto his left foot and fired a low shot past two defenders inside the near post to wrap up the win.
