Helton and Lucho on Porto's Dynamo delight

When Group A leaders FC Porto play FC Dynamo Kyiv their minds will go back to facing the same side in different circumstances four years ago. Helton and Lucho González look back.

When FC Porto welcome FC Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday, they do so with a maximum six points in UEFA Champions League Group A. It was a different story four years ago.

Back then, Porto lost 1-0 at home to Dynamo on matchday three, their third defeat in a row, and their hopes looked slim to say the least. But a fortnight later they travelled to Kyiv, prevailed 2-1, and ended up winning the group and reaching the quarter-finals, where they were only just pipped by eventual runners-up Manchester United FC.

Involved that night at Dynamo's old Valeriy Lobanovskyi Stadium were goalkeeper Helton and midfielder Lucho González, who volleyed in the added-time winner. They reminisce about that night with UEFA.com in the video above and speak about their ambitions for this season, Helton saying: "You always have to dream."
