Rubin ease past Rovers

Published Add your comment

Midfielder Gokdeniz Karadeniz eased Rubin Kazan past Irish minnows Shamrock Rovers as the Russian side opened their Europa League Group A campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Obafemi Martins had opened the scoring at Tallaght Stadium after just three minutes, and Christian Noboa made it 2-0 five minutes after the break before Karadeniz capped a fine individual display with a sweetly-struck third on the hour.

Rubin striker Nelson Valdez had earlier seen a first-half penalty saved by Ryan Thompson, and Sergei Ryzhikov matched his feat to keep out Stephen O'Donnell's 64th-minute spot-kick.
