Once again in Europe, I expected tougher opposition, instead we convincing beat a poor Dinamo side.
The opening goal was fantastic. Berbatov got on the end of a poor throw from Dinamo’s ‘keeper and lashed the ball into the back on the net.
The second was again brilliant. Robinson’s goal-kick to Defoe was with pin point accuracy. Defoe ran passed the Romanian defenders and slotted home.
Our third came soon after half time when Defoe tapped in following a Lennon shot.
After various substitutions by both sides, Jean-Philippe Mendy got a consolation goal for Dinamo. Not sure where our defence were, but the word sloppy comes to mind!
Tomorrow the draw for the knockout stage of the UEFA Cup is made (12pm GMT to be exact). We’ll face a side who finished third in their group. Thankfully we’ll avoid the team that failed in the Champions’ League.
