Goals by Brazilians Jadson and Ilsinho, who scored the winner a minute from time, put Shakhtar Donetsk into the UEFA Cup final after a 2-1 victory over fellow Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev on Thursday.
Shakhtar, who beat Dynamo 3-2 on aggregate after the second
leg of the semi-final, became the first Ukrainian team to reach
the UEFA Cup final where they will meet either Werder Bremen or
Hamburg SV in Istanbul on May 20.
Jadson put Shakhtar ahead after 17 minutes with a fine shot
into the top corner of the net from the edge of the box but
striker Ismael Bangoura equalised two minutes after halftime.
With the match heading towards extra time, Ilsinho raced on
to a long punt out of defence, rounded two defenders and placed
a left-foot shot inside the far bottom corner for the winner.
