Brann bowled over by rampant Radzinevicius

FK Suduva 3-2 SK Brann (agg: 6-4) Suduva stun Norwegian contenders.

FK Suduva 3-2 SK Brann (Suduva win 6-4 on aggregate)
A Tomas Radzinevicius hat-trick gave FK Suduva a second successive 3-2 victory against SK Brann tonight, booking the Lithuanian side a place in the UEFA Cup first round.

Racing start
Having beaten Brann on Norwegian soil two weeks ago, plucky Suduva raced into a 4-2 aggregate lead inside three minutes when Radzinevicius latched on to a Giedrius Slavickas cross to score.

Frenzied crowd
Nkosinathi Nhleko pulled one back for the visitors on 16 minutes but Radzinavicius struck again on the half-hour mark, blasting a 17-metre effort high into the corner to send the Kaunas crowd into a frenzy.

Hat-trick hero
Six minutes before the break, Radzinavicius completed his hat-trick by converting another fine cross from Slavickas and although Nhleko doubled his tally for the night on the stroke of half-time, his side could not find the scoring touch after the interval and Suduva held on for a famous win.

'We did what we could'
Humble Suduva coach Algimantas Gabrys said: "We could have won by a bigger margin if not for the flaws in our backline. We don't have any international experience, but we did what we could."
