UEFA Cup - Kewell Scores, Everton Draws.

Socceroo Harry Kewell has scored again for his new Turkish club Galatasary. In their opening game of the UEFA cup, Turkish champions Galatasary secured an invaluable away win to Swiss side Bellinzona. Kewell's strike came in the 39th minute, receiving the long ball wide in the box, he calmly slotted it past the keeper with a ferocious swing of his trusty left hoof. The goal both opened the scoring and equalised for the Turks. The score line see sawed during the match with fellow ex-liverpool player Milan Baros scoring twice for the home team. The winner was eventually scored in injury time through a fortuidous deflection leaving little chance for the Swiss teams keeper, putting the final score at 3-4 after an enthralling match.

Tim Cahill's Everton was also in UEFA cup action at home to Belgian side Standard Liege, a thoroughly entertaining match ended in a two all draw. Everton came from behind twice to secure what is ultimately a disappointing result against what most would consider an inferior side.

As a Liverpool fan, I was actually really sorry to see things did not work out for Kewell at Anfield Road. I think landing in Galatasary, he landed on his feet. It's certainly a passionate public-he will find that out the first time he plays against Fernebache. I wish him well-he's one of my favorite Aussie players.
