Achnas turning dreams into reality
Friday, 21 July 2006

by John Leonidou from Nicosia

A sleepy village to the east of the island of Cyprus will come to life tomorrow afternoon when Ethnikos Achnas FC look to complete an improbable passage from the UEFA Intertoto Cup to the UEFA Cup.

Greatest day
Formed in 1968 and a regular presence in the First Division only since the late 1980s, Achnas are preparing for the greatest day in their short history as they face Maccabi Petach-Tikva FC having won last week's first leg 2-0 in Israel. Achnas have already eliminated Albanian side FK Partizani and NK Osijek of Croatia, and are expecting the majority of the 5,000 inhabitants of the village to show their support as they chase a hat-trick of Intertoto triumphs.

'Incredible'
Goalkeeper Panicos Charalampous, whose clean sheet paved the way for winning goals from Lars Schlichting and Levani Kebadze last week, said of Saturday's decisive match: "If we do manage to qualify for the UEFA Cup then it will be something incredible for the team and something historic for the club. We're living a dream which appears to be turning into a reality. Qualification is in our own hands although we still have to play our best as nothing will be settled until the final whistle."

'Spirit and discipline'
A place best known for its dam, Achnas is still awaiting an opportunity to acclaim its side as heroes. The closest they have come to glory is the 2002 Cypriot Cup final, which they lost 1-0 to Anorthosis Famagusta FC. On the eve of the game at the 4,000-capacity Dhasaki stadium, coach Svetoza Sapuric said: "The players need to be congratulated for their performance in the first leg - they gave absolutely everything and showed patience, spirit and discipline." A similar showing tomor

Ethinkos Achnas progress to UEFA cup. This is a great result from a village team whose village has been under occupation by Turkey since 1974.
For those not sure of where Achna is it is in south eastern Cyprus and can be seen whilst driving towards Protaras / Paralimni and Ayia Napa.

Tommorrow night sees APOEL and Omonia lookingto progress to the next round of the CL. APOEL lead 3-1 fro mthe home leg and should go through agaisnt their San Marino opponents, whislt Omonia's 2-2 draw with Rijeka of Croatia shoudl hold them in good sted for the return leg at the GSP.

AC Omonia Nicosia 2-1 HNK Rijeka (agg: 4-3)

Musa Mguni scored twice, the second a late winner, as Omonia ended the challenge of their Croatian visitors. Following a largely uneventful opening hour, the Zimbabwean broke the deadlock from close range after Rijeka goalkeeper Dragan Jilić could only parry a shot from George Vakouftsis. Josip Lukunić drew Rijeka level with a deflected shot in the 76th minute, although his side were still heading out on away goals when Mguni fired in a superb shot from outside the area with four minutes remaining to ensure an aggregate triumph.



S.S. Murata 0-4 APOEL FC
(agg: 7-1)

Having won the first leg 3-1 in Nicosia a fortnight ago, Cypriot side APOEL powered into the second qualifying round draw with an emphatic win in San Marino. They went into half-time 3-0 ahead and added another in the second period to complete a commanding performance.

APOEL and Ethnikos Achan are in the same 2group" as Trabzanspor of Turkey who were knocked out by Anorthosis and Hapoel Tel Aviv, Auxerre, CSKA Sofia and Roeselare of Belgium. Avoiding Auxerre will suit both teams. APOEL I beleive will hold their own against any of the others.

Ominia will face opposition from Romania - Dinamo or Rapid Bucerest, Partizan Belgrade, Lokomotiv Sofia or ~Litex from Bulgaira or Turkish opposition in the form of Kayserispor the conquerors of Larissa in the intertoto cup.

APOEL v Trabzanspor
Ethnikos v Roeseare
Omonia v Litex

Interesting and juicy draw, APOEL go to Turkey the scene opf Anrthosis great resukt kast season. THe Turks will be out for revenge, and no doubt the APOEL fans will be met with the same hospitality that greeted Anrthosis.

Omonia I fancy to go through.

Ethnikos's opponents , I have not heard of this team.

Shame Ethinkos is a small Cypriot team, had it been Appolonas or Anorthosis or either of the Nicosia teams, then I would say they would the Belgiians.

And all of Greece.

APOEL are a decent side. Trabzonspor could have drawn a much easier "minnow" than APOEL.

Unreal. Ethnikos Achnas, the club from a Cypriot town of only a few thousand people, the club who started in rd1 of the Intertoto cup has just humped Roeselare at home 5-0 and made the UEFA Cup.

Much respect.

BELIEVE IT!

Achnas, now facing Lens in the UEFA Cup drew the first leg 0-0 in Cyprus, and now travel to France.

This club started in the 1st Intertoto round! The 1st round and is still playing in Europe! I believe they are the only side still playing who started then!

They have won 4 knockout rounds.

http://www.uefa.com/competitions/int...lts/index.html

Partizani
Osijek
M.Petah Tikva
Roselare

They score a goal in France and anything can happen as the scorless draw favours them.

With this little side, who knows.
