That’s it. Kaput. There is to be zippo English presence in the quarter-finals of this season’s European competitions after Everton, our final remaining representatives, were consummately expunged from the Europa League by Dynamo Kiev earlier this evening.

Going into the game nursing a healthy 2-1 lead from the first leg at Goodison, the Toffees were sent sprawling out after conceding five goals amid something of a defensive horror show out in Ukraine.

That said, a couple of Dynamo’s goals were proper crackers, with Andriy Yarmolenko’s 21st-minute opener setting the tone in style…

Romelu Lukaku then equalised eight minutes later with his 100th senior goal (at the age of 21), tucking away a tidy top-corner finish of his own…

Dynamo then blitzed Everton with a two-goal salvo in as many minutes with Lukasz Teodorczyk and Miguel Veloso scoring in the 35th and 37th minutes respectively before Oleg Gusev stabbed in another shortly after half-time to make it 4-1.

Then, commeth the 76th minute, commeth the man as Dynamo left-back Vitorino Antunes circumnavigated Tim Howard for a fifth time with an absolute rasper from 30 yards…


This poor chap’s face summed it up nicely…

Fancy going all that way, and for what? An 82nd minute Phil Jagielka consolation header.

5-2 it finished.
