Eagles soar to Super Bowl victory over Patriots

The Philadelphia Eagles stunned the New England Patriots with an upset 41-33 victory to claim their first Super Bowl on Sunday after a late Tom Brady fumble ended the veteran quarterback’s tilt at history.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles – who started the season as a back-up and had considered retiring from the NFL two years ago – was named MVP after a magnificent performance that saw him throw for three touchdowns and 373 yards.

Foles’ fairytale starring role laid the foundation for a victory which sparked jubilation in Philadelphia as thousands of fans took to the streets to celebrate.

“I am speechless,” said Foles, who was named MVP. “To be part of this organisation, to be in this moment is something you dream about as a kid. We have been wanting this for a long time, and I am just blessed to be a part of it.”
