Everton trounced by Dynamo Kyiv

Kyiv, Ukraine (SportsNetwork.com) - Everton was dispatched from the Europa League in humiliating fashion on Thursday, suffering a 5-2 defeat at Dynamo Kyiv to bow out, 6-4, on aggregate.

The Toffees carried a 2-1 lead into the second leg but found themselves trailing after 21 minutes thanks to a superb curling effort from Andriy Yarmolenko that found the top corner.

Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for the English side eight minutes later with a stunning left-footed strike of his own, but the remainder of the match belonged to Dynamo as the Ukrainian side punished a host of defensive mistakes from the Premier League side to advance with ease.

Lukasz Teodorczyk restored the lead for Dynamo in the 35th minute before Miguel Veloso's shot two minutes later took a wicked deflection on its way past Tim Howard.

Oleg Gusev and Antunes struck 20 minutes apart in the second half to put the result to bed, and while Phil Jagielka netted a consolation goal eight minutes from time, Everton heads home to see all of England's clubs eliminated from European contention this term.

AS Roma also crashed out of the Europa League in horrific fashion on Thursday, suffering a 3-0 home loss to Fiorentina to bow out to its fellow Serie A club.
