Shakhtar act their rage in Super Cup rout

Goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov said "we became angry with ourselves and pushed forward" after his FC Shakhtar Donetsk side thrashed SC Tavriya Simferopol 7-1 in the Ukrainian Super Cup.

FC Shakhtar Donetsk overwhelmed SC Tavriya Simferopol 7-1 in the Ukrainian Super Cup on Sunday.

The champions took the Ukrainian Cup winners apart in Zaporizhya, with Olexandr Gladkiy putting them ahead with a fine second-minute strike. Although Maxym Feschuk levelled just after the half-hour, Jadson volleyed Shakhtar back in front before the break, and strikes after it from Gladkiy, Willian, Luiz Adriano (2) and Răzvan Raţ put the game well beyond Tavriya.

Shakhtar goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov said: "After going ahead so early, we tailed off a bit. It was really hot, we lost the initiative and let them equalise. That was the turning point as we became angry with ourselves and pushed forward."

"I really can't single anyone out after such a performance," said coach Mircea Lucescu. "The whole team were just great." Shakhtar will play in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League group stage. Tavriya's UEFA Europa League campaign begins in the play-off round.
