Damp squib

In the less important European competition draw of the day, all three English sides involved in the Europa League have been given pretty dull ties, with Everton receiving the sharpest end of the stick. They have drawn Portuguese side Sporting Club de Portugal, which will at least mean that there will be loads of pasty Scousers expecting summertime weather in Lisbon, and being disappointed.

Fulham, who have enjoyed a great run in the competition so far are up against Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, while Liverpool will be amusing the nation when they play against Unirea Urziceni. Actually interesting games include a clash between European greats Ajax and Juventus and, erm, that’s it. The draw is below, as we did it before.
