Amond's Euro vision takes a major blow

PADRAiG AMOND'S hopes of qualifying for Europe next season took a nosedive as Pacos de Ferreira were hammered 6-1 in the Portuguese league last night.

Amond's club led 1-0 at half-time at home to Rio Ave but they collapsed after the break.

Aiden McGeady's Spartak Moscow kept up their bad start to the Russian league season as they could only draw 0-0 at home to the Ruud Gullit- managed Terek Grozny.

In Belgium, Dominic Foley was on target for Cercle Bruges as they drew 1-1 with Sint Truiden, his third goal in four games.

Meanwhile, Caleb Folan's MLS side, Colorado Rapids, lost 3-0 to FC Dallas. Folan was booked and substituted in the game.
