Linfield ensured comfortable progress into the second qualifying round for the Europa League with a 3-0 victory over IF Fuglafjordur.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg a week ago, David Jeffrey's men completed a comprehensive aggregate win to tee-up a second-round meeting with Greek side Xanthi.

Michael Gault opened the scoring five minutes before the break, with Jamie Mulgrew adding a second shortly after it.

The game was already up by that point, but the prolific Peter Thompson added a third for good measure on the hour-mark.

Linfield will head to Greece next week, with the second leg to be played the week after.
