Nikita Rukavytsya scored his first goal for Dutch club FC Twente as they swept aside SC Joure 8-0 in the Dutch Cup second round.

The Eredivisie club had no sympathy for their lower league rivals, piling on four goals in the first half.

After 65 minutes, the score was 5-0, before former Perth Glory striker Rukavytsya netted to make it 6-0 just two minutes later.

It will be a confidence booster for the 22-year old who was recently joined by fellow Australian David Carney at the club.

Two more goals in the last 11 minutes finished off the demolition for Twente, who move convincingly to the third round.
