Everton have eased through to the group stages of the Eruopa League with a 5-1 aggregate win over Czech Republic’s Sigma Olomouc.
The Toffees took a 4-0 lead into the away leg after an easy romp at Goodison Park last week and came away with a 1-1 draw.
Elsewhere in Europe, Dutch club FC Twente did enough to overcome Azerbaijan outfit FK Qarabag despite a 0-0 draw in the away leg.
Swiss club FC Basel easily accounted for another Azerbaijan club FK Baku, winning 5-1 at home and 8-2 on aggregate allowing Socceroo Scott Chipperfield to show his wares on the European stage.
Harry Kewell’s Galatasaray had a 1-1 away draw with FC Levadia Tallinn but got through 6-1 on aggregate but it was a different story for fellow Aussies Luke Wilkshire and Ante Covic whose teams were both eliminated.
Wilkshire’s Dinamo Moscow could not turn around the 2-1 fist leg away loss to Bulgarian’s CSKA Sofia, being held to a scoreless draw at home whilst Covic’s Elfsborg defeated Italians Lazio at home 1-0 but it wasn’t enough as they went down 3-0 in the first leg.
