Twente out of Champions League

FC Twente’s hopes of a place in the Champion’s League were brutally dashed on Tuesday night with a last minute own goal in injury time by Peter Wisgerhof. Sporting Lisbon walked away the victors with a final score of 1-1.

Twente had to win the game to go through to Europe’s top competition.
Talking to the press after the match in Enschede, Twente’s British trainer Steve McClaren said his team had played well and did not deserve to lose. ‘I have a dressing room full of devasted players,’ he said.
