FC Porto beats Dinamo Kyiv 2-1
In Champions League
Lucho scored an injury-time goal to give FC Porto a 2-1, come-from-behind win over Dinamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday, AP reported.
Lucho received a cross from Pele from the right flank before guiding the ball into an empty net in the second minute of injury time.
«Porto`s experience paid off,» Dinamo coach Yuri Syomin said. «We played a perfect game and we have no one to blame for the defeat.
Artem Milevskiy had given Dinamo the lead in the 21st minute with a right-footed shot past goalkeeper Helton. But Rolando equalized from 10 meters (yards) with a header from Raul Meireles` free kick in the 69th.
«It was a perfect game,» Porto coach Jesualdo Ferreira said through a translator. «Dinamo players wanted to get a result, while my players strove for the victory.
Porto, winless in three matches, opened strongly and Meireles hit the post eight minutes into the game. Lisandro had an effort blocked by Stanislav Bogush a minute later.
Lisandro then had another chance in the 20th before the home side went ahead. Porto gradually seized the initiative and finally got an equalizer with 20 minutes to play.
Meireles had two efforts blocked before Ognjen Vukojevic missed a chance to give Dinamo the lead in the 88th, hitting the post off Milevskiy`s cross.
Lucho`s injury time goal then gave Porto the win, but he will miss the next match after being dismissed for a second yellow card for taking off his jersey to celebrate his goal.
