Manchester City reached the second qualifying round of the UEFA Cup with a 2-0 win (4-0 agg.) over EB Streymur - but it was the part-timers from the Faroe Islands who stole the show.

Already 2-0 down from the first leg, they were never going to seriously worry the Barclays Premier League club but the visitors fought until the last seconds, their pride certainly intact.

Martin Petrov scored his second goal of the tie early in the second half and Darius Vassell grabbed another in injury-time.
