Linfield progress in Europe

Irish Premiership side Linfield secured a place in the Europa League second qualifying round by holding on for a 3-2 aggregate win over B36 Torshavn.

The second leg of the first-round tie finished 1-1 at Mourneview Park after Michael Carvill's 17th-minute tap-in was cancelled out by an Adeshina Lawal penalty for the Faroe Islands outfit after 48 minutes.

Linfield will now faced Swedish club AIK Stockholm in the second round.
