Ewerton: Pleased with the 0-0 draw against Newcastle in the Europa League

On a freezing night at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, the two sides played out a game of precious few chances.

Guus Hiddink's men had won every one of their home matches in Europe this season, so Newcastle will be satisfied with the result heading into next week's return game at home.

Former Corinthians stopper Ewerton was impressed with the Magpies' performance, but believes his side are good enough to progress through to the quarter-finals.

"It was a good result, but we could have won and achieved a good result at home," he told UOL.

"The game in England is going to be harder but we can win. Their team is strong and they showed it on the pitch.

"It's important to add that we missed some of our experienced players. Willian's injury harmed our attacking strength.

"But we will work hard in the next days, and use the game in the Russian League on the weekend [as preparation] to try to advance in the Europa League".

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
