Elmohamady wins penalty as Hull City crash out of Europa League on away goals
Hull City’s first foray into Europe was ended by away goals as Lokeren booked their place in the group stages of the Europa League.
Hull City, who lost 1-0 in the first leg of the Europa League tie in Belgium, started brightly when Maynor Figueroa’s cross was somehow missed by Davino Verhulst in the Lokeren goal and Robbie Brady calmly applied the finishing touch from close range.
However, Lokeren responded right after half-time when the Tigers only half-cleared the resulting corner. The ball broke to Jordan Remacle, who found the top corner with an unstoppable effort.
Hull earned a penalty seven minutes after when Egyptian international Ahmed Elmohamady’s cross struck the arm of a Lokeren defender and Brady slotted home from the spot.
Ivorian striker Yannick Sagbo was sent off for a high tackle, which made the mission even more difficult for Hull, who eventually crashed out on away goals.
Elmohamady played the whole 90 minutes, and despite his confidence of reaching the group stages, continued his impressive form for the Tigers.
They next visit Aston Villa, who are currently level on points, on Sunday, 31 August.
