Mat Ryan's Europa dream crushed in Kiev

Socceroo goalkeeper Mat Ryan’s dreams of a triple triumph this season have been shattered with Club Brugge knocked out of the Europa League.

The Belgian outfit lost 1-0 to Dnipro in Kiev after Yevhen Shakhov’s deflected shot beat the Aussie shot-stopper with just eight minutes left on the clock.

Ryan was immense to keep the tie goalless in Belgium last week and on track for a treble-winning season.

The result means the Belgian Cup winners can now turn their focus completely on the domestic league which they lead with seven games to play.
