Irish outfit Sligo Rovers have shocked Norwegian giants Rosenborg in Trondheim in the first-leg of their Europa League clash.

Alan Keane handed Rovers a well-deserved lead on 54 minutes before Danny North’s goal shocked the hosts as he tapped home for Sligo’s second.

Per Joar Hansen’s side pulled back a fortuitous consolation 10 minutes from time courtesy of a David Cawley own goal. But the Bit O’Red held firm to record a magnificent victory, only their third ever in European competition.
