Europa League: MyPa 5-0 Cefn Druids (Agg 5-0)

Huw Griffiths at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground

Cefn Druids saw their Europa League adventure end with a one-sided defeat to Finnish side MyPa.

The Druids secured one of the most remarkable results in the history of Welsh clubs in Europe with a 0-0 draw in last week's Europa League first leg.

But the Welsh side were no match for a side from Finland's top division and conceded five goals in the second leg.

They were the first club from Welsh football's second tier to compete in Europe.

MyPa welcomed back their three African players Hassan Sesay, David Opoku and Olajide Williams, who all missed the first leg, for the second leg against the Druids and they played a key role in their side's victory.

Cefn Druids had edged the first leg at the Racecourse Ground against the Finish outfit but were under the cosh from the first whistle with goalkeeper Chris Mullock keeping the visitors in the second leg at the Lahti Stadium.

But the Druids found themselves 3-0 behind at the break with midfielder Shutsa Nongotamba, strikers Ville Saxman and Williams all scoring for the home side.

Cefn Druids made the worst possible start to the second half when they conceded a fourth when midfielder Riley O'Neill scored from a corner straight from the restart.

Opoku then rubbed salt into the Welsh side's wounds with the Finish side's fifith goal on the 70th minute to record a comfortable victory.

MyPa will face Rapid Bucharest in the second qualifying round.
