Stoke will now venture further than they’ve ever managed in Europe thanks to an 81st-minute Kenwyne Jones goal (and a superb last-minute save from Asmir Begovic for that matter) which saw them equalise against Dynamo Kiev on the night and thus ensure the Potter’s qualification for the knock-out phases of this year’s Europa League.

Despite being squashed by the Ukrainians throughout the first-half, the point was thoroughly deserved by the final whistle, with Stoke putting in a lung-bursting second-half performance to claw their way back into the game.

What’s more, a further point against Besiktas in their final game in a fortnight’s time will see now Tony Pulis’ side confirmed as Group E winners thanks to results elsewhere last night.

*golf applause*

Well played chaps, well played.

    We may not be the prettest football team in the world, but noone can take away from Stoke what an amazing achievement this is.

    I’m really proud of the boys for their spirit and determination, and how well they try for us fans, who surely have to be some of the best when it comes to football support!!

    Come on Potters!!
