    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev

    At least one English club is willing to show some spirit in Europe. By the time the Toffees kick-off the second leg in Kiev next Thursday they could be the last club flying the flag for British football in Europe. Thanks for your company.

    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Roberto Martinez is now addressing the national media and his thoughts have already turned to Sunday's home game with Newcastle. "On Sunday, we need that level of performance we saw in the second half tonight," says the Spaniard.

    Morgan Davies: Much better from Everton tonight, really pleasing performance. Excellent refereeing display was also great to see.

    Si's Insights: Good performance from, and deserved win for, Everton. I just hope they don't live to regret the away goal.

    Steven McNamara: The Europa league is underrated. Champions League hugely overrated, far too hyped. Celtic fan hoping Everton win the competition.

    Phil Woodward: Why don't teams in Europa League play their league game on a Monday night? Maybe Premier League clubs will take it seriously? Well done Toffees.

  8. Manager reaction

    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez on ITV: "We learned that when we have got that tempo in our play and when we use the character we have we are a very strong team. We started with the team edgy and with a bit of anxiety in our game.

    "We scored a very good goal and had one cleared off the line. You could see the momentum carrying us through. We then kept Dynamo Kiev very, very quiet and in those situations you can be exposed.

    "Overall it was a very good performance and the reaction shows we are a very good team. We are not favourites as the home team always has a little advantage. Now we are looking forward to the second leg as we travel well in Europe. It is a challenge we are looking forward to."

  9. Player reaction

    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Everton forward Romelu Lukaku

    Everton striker Romelu Lukaku on ITV: "I'm very happy with the team performance. The team reacted well after first half. We should have maybe scored three goals to be safe but they have top class players.

    "It's up there with my best performances. Now we have to focus on the league as we are not doing too well.

    "Everyone up front was scared to have the ball and we put the defenders and the midfielders in danger, but after 20 minutes we improved. Now we are into the last third of season and if we want to save the season we have to keep playing like this.

    "We are favourites, but it will be difficult over there."

  10. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Roberto Martinez disagrees with Romelu Lukaku's assessment that Everton are favourites to progress. The Toffees boss tells TV his team produced a 'mature' performance and his players produced a 'terrific' reaction to falling behind.

  11. Latest from around Europe

    Vitolo

    Sevilla midfielder Vitolo scored the fastest ever goal in the Europa League as defending champions Sevilla beat Villarreal 3-1 at the Estadio El Madrigal in an all-Spanish tie. The forward scored virtually straight from the kick-off - finishing from Kevin Gameiro's lofted pass after 13.21 seconds.

    Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain scored a hat-trick as Italian side Napoli fought back from going a goal down inside two minutes to beat Dinamo Moscow, who had Roman Zobnin sent off shortly after the break, 3-1 at the Stadio San Paolo.

    Seydou Keita headed in from Alessandro Florenzi's corner to give Roma what could prove to be vital away goal and earned a 1-1 draw against Fiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Viola goalkeeper Neto had saved a penalty from Roma's Adem Ljajic moments earlier.

    Romelu Lukaku celebrates

    Goodison is bouncing. Romelu Lukaku has become Everton's leading scorer in Europe. The Toffees deservedly have a lead. Can Kiev respond in the final few minutes?

  27. GOAL

    Everton 2-1 Dynamo Kiev - Romelu Lukaku

    Romelu Lukaku scores from the penalty spot

    It's in! Just. Romelu Lukaku scores his seventh goal of this Europa League campaign but the Kiev keeper almost gets a foot. It's not a great pen, struck right down the middle and not all that powerfully. Everton don't care. They have the lead.

  28. PENALTY TO EVERTON

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Handball from Danilo Silva - clearly handling Leon Osman's cross. Needless.

  29. Latest form around Europe

    Fiorentina

    Fiorentina goalkeeper Neto has saved a penalty from Roma's Adem Ljajic to preserve his side's 1-0 lead at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

  30. TEN MINUTES REMAINING

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Still one way traffic. But for all their attacking intent Everton are still on level terms. They need to take one of these chances.

  31. SUBSTITUTION

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Boos ring out at Goodison. But they're not directed at Roberto Martinez. Instead it's Oleg Gusev who is on the receiving end of the fans' frustration as he eats up a few extra seconds by walking off ever so slowly. Artem Kravets is the new man on.

    Everything Sport: Steven Naismith highly underrated. Always drives Everton and almost as much of a talisman as Lukaku.

    Olexandr Shovkovskiy has been anything but convincing but the Kiev keeper gets his angles right to keep out another fierce attempt by Romelu Lukaku.

    Another change. Leon Osman, who knows how to score, comes on for Ross Barkley for the final 17 minutes or so. Everton are throwing everything but the kitchen sink at this to establish the lead.

  34. CLOSE!

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev

    So much talk about Andriy Yarmolenko before this game. We've not seen too much of Kiev's danger man until now as he creates space for himself just outside the area before teeing up a shot...and firing just over. Oh so close.

  35. SUBSTITUTION

    Kiev make a change - with the experienced Denys Garmash replacing Vitaliy Buyalskiy.

    At the Estadio El Madrigal, Villarreal's Luciano Vietto temporarily halved the deficit for the hosts before Sevilla's Kevin Gameiro netted two minutes later to make it 3-1 to defending champions in the all-Spanish tie.

    Fiorentina are 1-0 up in their all-Italian tie with Roma.

  41. Post update

    If Everton don't take a lead to Ukraine they'll be frustrated. This tie has been turned on its head. Ross Barkley has a goal-bound shot charged down before Seamus Coleman goes close with a header from Kevin Mirallas's cross. How much longer can Kiev's defence hold out?

    Steven Naismith header

    Helter-skelter at Goodison Park. Everton fans were ready to let rip but the players trudge off to applause after a strong finish to the half. There's an awful long way to go. But the Toffees are in the ascendancy.

  56. Post update

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Everton are ending the half with a flourish. They have a huge chance. Kevin Mirallas goes round the keeper and Romelu Lukaku is screaming for the ball for a simple tap-in. But Mirallas's pass is cut out before any damage can be done.

    Everton 1-1 Dynamo Kiev - Steven Naismith

    Steven Naismith equalizes

    Everton have come alive. And they're now level. Romelu Lukaku bulldozes his way through Kiev's defence to set up Steven Naismith. The Scotland forward still has work to do but shows great composure to fire a low finish across and beyond the keeper. Goodison erupts.

  60. Post update

    Everton 0-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Lukaku hits the bar

    Better from Everton. Romelu Lukaku skims the bar with a free-kick but the referee gives a corner, thinking the keeper had made a finger-tip save. From the corner Phil Jagielka's goal-bound header is cleared off the line by Danilo Silva before Antolin Alcaraz has a shot deflected over.

  61. Latest from around Europe

    Stephane M'bia

    Defending champions Sevilla have doubled their lead at Villarreal, with Stephane M'bia heading in Benoit Tremoulinas's cross to make it 2-0 at the Estadio El Madrigal.

    Gonzalo Higuain has headed hosts Napoli level against Dinamo Moscow to make it 1-1 at Stadio San Paolo - finishing from Faouzi Ghoulam's cross to cancel out Kevin Kuranyi's quick-fire opener.

    Meanwhile, Josip Ilicic has rifled home from Mohamed Salah's throughball to give hosts Fiorentina a 1-0 lead in their all-Italian tie with Roma at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

    Romelu Lukaku shoots

    A rare chance for Everton. The Kiev keeper charges way out of his goal to clear a looping ball into his half but makes a bit of a mess of it. Romelu Lukaku has the ball at his feet 35-yards out. He tries his luck...the ball flies narrowly wide.

    Poor miss from a rare opening.

  64. Post update

    Everton 0-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Dynamo Kiev look a threat each time they surge forward. Dieumerci Mbokani's powerful header looks as though it's heading for the net but Phil Jagielka makes a vital block.

    The Ukrainian leaders are full of confidence. Sergiy Sydorchuk lets fly from 25-yards. It's a low effort that's skidding towards the net before Tim Howard sticks out a hand.

  65. Post update

    Everton 0-1 Dynamo Kiev

    Everton fans are out of their seats. Romelu Lukaku surges down the left and evades his marker but his pull-back is intercepted behind. The corner is poor and comes to nothing.

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez speaking to ITV: "It's been an incredible experience for us as a football club to travel different countries and show what we are as a club and a team. It's bringing memories back of all those journeys we had in the past in Europe.

    "I think the last 16 teams left, the level is fantastic. There's huge quality in those sides. The big aspect of Dynamo Kiev is the winning mentality they have. When you are ahead of teams like Shakhtar in the league, it shows what they have. It's a very, very strong unit that carries that winning mentality and it's going to be a big test."

  86. Around Europe

    Kevin De Bruyne

    It's full-time in the 18:00 GMT kick-offs around Europe and a second-half brace from former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne helped German side Wolfsburg fight back from going a goal down after five minutes at the Volkswagen Arena to secure a 3-1 win against Italian visitors Inter Milan.

    There was another fight back in Belgium, where a Tom De Sutter strike and Lior Rafaelov's penalty cancelled out Gokhan Tore's opener for Turkish side Beskitas to earn a 2-1 win for Club Brugge.

    Meanwhile, Roman Zozulya's left-footed strike was enough to give Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk a 1-0 win against Dutch champions Ajax in Ukraine.

  87. Toffees for a quid

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    Fancy watching Everton for £1? It sounds a bargain but there is a catch. The match takes place in conflict-hit Ukraine.

    The Toffees have been handed an initial allocation of 1,500 tickets for the second leg away to Dynamo Kiev on 19 March. Yet cheap tickets may still not be enough to lure Toffee fans following violence from Dynamo fans in their win against Guingamp in the previous round.

    Kiev, have been ordered to partially close their stadium for the visit of Roberto Martinez's side after fans invaded the pitch and clashed with security staff. The Ukrainian Premier League club were also fined £51,000 after the crowd trouble caused the game to be briefly halted.

    Todos, London: I think Dynamo Kiev are being underestimated, they are the only unbeaten team domestically in the 10 top European leagues. Yarmolenko will be the difference tonight.

    Fifteen minutes to kick-off. The rain continues to fall on Goodison Park. Both sets of players are going through their pre-match routines and the ground is filling up. Can the Toffees produce another big European performance?

  92. Around Europe

    Kevin De Bruyne

    Former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has curled in a free-kick from out on the left to bag his second goal of the game and give Wolfsburg, who were a goal down after five minutes at the Volkswagen Arena, a commanding 3-1 lead against Italian visitors Inter Milan.

    Meanwhile, Lior Rafaelov has scored from the penalty spot to give Club Brugge a 2-1 lead over Turkish club Besiktas in Belgium.

    Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk lead 1-0 against Dutch champions Ajax in Ukraine.

  93. Remember when?

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    Everton v Fiorentina

    Everton will be hoping for a different outcome than the last time they reached the last 16 of Europe's second-tier competition. It all ended in tears in 2008 for David Moyes's men as they lost to Italian side Fiorentina on penalties.

    Goals by Andrew Johnson and Mikel Arteta drew the tie level as Everton dominated the tie throughout. But Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebastien Frey produced a string of brilliant saves to keep the Toffees at bay.

    It might have been seven years ago but there are still plenty of players around Goodison Park who recall that dramatic night. Tim Howard, Phil Jagielka, Steven Pienaar and Leon Osman all started while Tony Hibbert and Leighton Baines were on the bench.

  94. Everton's season 'unacceptable'

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    He works for one of the most loyal boardrooms in English football, but Roberto Martinez accepts his position will be the subject of intense focus until results improve.

    It is only two years ago since the Toffees boss experienced relegation and winning the FA Cup with Wigan.

    "For us as a football club, the position we are in is unacceptable," adds Martinez. "At the end of the season, we need to look at why it has happened. But for the time being, we need to show a real desire to win. The team is performing in a manner that we should have got more points. But the reality is we have got 28 points. Now every game is a final."

    Freddy Howardinho: Maybe the Martinez passing style works well against European teams but is relegation fodder in the Premier League?

    Harry Clark: Not good enough. Man City can be forgiven, Barca are a force. Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea should be doing SO much better.

    German hosts Wolfsburg have capitalised on a mistake from Inter Milan goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo to take a 2-1 lead against the Italian visitors. Vierinha pounced on a miscued clearance before squaring the ball for former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to tap home.

    Meanwhile, Tom De Sutter has hit back for Club Brugge - diverting in Felipe Gedoz's low 25-yard shot - to cancel out Gokhan Tore's opener for Beskitas to make it 1-1 in Belgium.

    Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk lead 1-0 against Dutch champions Ajax.

  98. Story of the Blues

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    Steven Naismith says Everton's players have more than a place in the Europa League quarter-finals on their minds - they're also playing for their futures. With the club fighting to stay in the Premier League, forward Naismith says the team faces an uncertain future.

    "This club is ambitious and wants to go forward and I'm sure the manager will look for a replacement to do the job he wants done if you're not doing it," said the Scotland international. "Without a doubt, people are playing for their futures. If you are not performing then you are not going to be here very long.

    "The biggest motivation of all is personal pride. You don't want to be in a team that is struggling to perform every week."

  99. Remember Rebrov?

    Remember Sergei Rebrov?

    The Dynamo Kiev boss is no stranger to these shores having turned out for both Tottenham and West Ham as a striker during his playing days. Now aged 40, Rebrov is in his first managerial job having taken charge of Kiev, the club he won nine league title with as a player, last May.

    Asked if he still takes an interest in his former clubs, Rebrov said: 'Of course I am still following Tottenham, West Ham - all the teams I played for. I'm glad because I think Tottenham are getting better. Harry Kane is a very good forward, scoring not just lots but some very important goals.

    'I'm also very pleased for my good friend Tim Sherwood (his former Tottenham team-mate), who is doing a good job as Aston Villa manager."

  100. National pride

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    It is not only the Premier League in a state of shock after a dramatic night of Champions League action. At the same time Chelsea were going out to Paris St-Germain, Ukraine's defending champions Shakhtar Donetsk were being humiliated 7-0 at Bayern Munich.

    No wonder Everton and Dynamo Kiev are both keen to restore some national pride this evening.

    Goodison Park

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez recalls Ross Barkley, Kevin Mirallas and Antolin Alcaraz to his starting line-up. The Blues were beaten 2-0 at Stoke eight days ago but make changes as midfielder Barkley comes in for Darron Gibson, Mirallas for the cup-tied Aaron Lennon and defender Alcaraz for John Stones - an injury doubt ahead of kick-off.

    The visitors make three changes from their weekend win and their top league scorer Andriy Yarmolenko is in. He has nine league goals this season.

    Everton XI: Howard, Garbutt, Jagielka, Alcaraz, Coleman, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Naismith, Lukaku.

    Dynamo Kiev XI: Shovskovskiy, Danilo Silva, Veloso, Antunes, Dragovic, Yarmolenko, Sydorchuk, Gusev, Vida, Buyalskiy, Mbokani.

    Home to Juventus on the Wednesday. Away to Rotherham on the Saturday. That's a scenario Everton could be faced with next season if they go down. The winners of this season's Europa League win a place in next season's Champions League.

    There are seven other Europa League ties taking place tonight - some are already under way while one has finished.

    Goals from Alex Witsel and Domenico Criscito either side of the break has given Russian side Zenit St Petersburg a 2-0 win against Italian visitors Torino, who had Marco Benassi sent off after 27 minutes.

    In the 18:00 GMT kick-offs, Inter Milan have been pegged back to 1-1 at Wolfsburg with Naldo's header cancelling out Rodrigo Palacio's fifth-minute opener for the Italians.

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev

    The Toffees have won just once in 12 top-flight games yet they are playing like world-beaters on the Europa League stage, brushing aside Germany's second best team Wolfsburg and French club Lille among others.

    Tonight they face a last-16 tie with Dynamo Kiev at Goodison Park. A victory is vital to take to Ukraine for next Thursday's second leg as Roberto Martinez's side look to forget their domestic troubles.

  109. Euro trash

    Everton v Dynamo Kiev (20:05 GMT)

    They're falling quicker than an England batsman at the Cricket World Cup. This time last month seven British clubs had ambitions of conquering Europe in the Champions League and the Europa League. Then Liverpool,Tottenham and Celtic fell through the trap door. Last night it was Chelsea's turn to succumb to continental opposition.

    This time next week - unless Arsenal and Manchester City can overturn first-leg deficits - Everton will be the last British team in Europe. That's right, the club 14th in the Premier League table just six points above the relegation zone.

  110. Euro Blues

    Everton manager Roberto Martinez

    Their season has been branded 'unacceptable' by the manager. Their Premier League future is far from secure after a dreadful run of form. Yet this time next week Everton may well be on their own flying the flag for British football in Europe.

    The hopes of a Premier League team appearing in a showcase European final could rest with the likes of Darron Gibson, Luke Garbutt and John Stones - not John Terry, Diego Costa or even Steven Gerrard.

    Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Celtic have gone. Arsenal and Manchester City are on the brink. Hands up who thought Everton would be Britain's last club standing in Europe?
