The team from West Yorkshire Huddersfield became the last member of the English Premier League in the 2017/18 season after defeating Reading in a 120-minute battle at Wembley Stadium.


Huddersfield in this season took the fifth place and in the semifinals of the playoffs met with Sheffield Wednesday, which passed in the penalty shootout (0: 0, 1: 1).


Reading, under the guidance of the legendary Yap Stam, took the third place, and in the semi-final met with Fulham, also having drawn the first match and defeating in return.


The Duel


The players of Huddersfield were the first to make a mistake. The German defender Hefele, beaten the second, failed to deceive the goalkeeper. However, the knees of the players of Reading began to tremble at the end of the series. Liam Moore and Jordan Obita did not realise the fourth and fifth penalties, and at the most critical moment, another German Christopher Schindler scored a "golden" penalty for Huddersfield.


Huddersfield won the most expensive and important football match, as the exit to the elite of England will seriously increase the club's income from television rights. The team is a three-time champion of England - though, its champion hat-trick the club did in the distant 1924, 1925 and 1926.


Wards of David Wagner make their debut in the Premier League 45 years later, since the last time they played in the highest English division in the distant 1972. It is interesting that they went to the Premier League with a negative goal difference in the regular season of Champion.

A Fairy Tale


The Head coach of the football club Huddersfield, David Wagner called the exit of the team in the English Premier League a fairy tale.


"A lot of experts wrote us off before the season, during the season I thought we could do a little more ... What happened is an incredible story, a fairy tale. I'm so happy because when I arrived, people said I had no experience: no Experience in British football, I do not have any experience with players, I've always had to struggle with it. It's proven that experience is important, but that's not all. Still, heart and desire matter a lot", Wagner said.
