Former Everton trio comment on victory over Dynamo Kiev

Former Everton players Kevin Sheedy, Gary Lineker and Phil Neville have all responded to the win in the Europa League.

Former Everton players Kevin Sheedy, Phil Neville and Gary Lineker have hailed the performance of Roberto Martinez's men on Twitter following their victory over Dynamo Kiev.

The Toffees came from behind to seal a 2-1 win at Goodison Park, courtesy of goals from Steven Naismith and a penalty from Romelu Lukaku.

They will now travel to the Ukraine next week with a slender lead to defend and looking to reproduce a fine performance and seal their progression to the next round of the Europa League.

Now, former favourites have responded to the victory, with Neville and Sheedy suggesting it could be the turning point in the campaign for the Blues, who are struggling down in the lower reaches of the Premier League, a far cry from their success in Europe.

However, Lineker seemed to be criticising the other English teams who have played in Europe, with Arsenal and Manchester City having lost their Champions League ties the week before and Chelsea being knocked out by Paris St Germain on Wednesday.

Adding to his praise for the side, Sheedy highlighted the performance of forward Lukaku for commendation after the Belgian put in another fine display in Europe.

The young forward was a constant nuisance to the Ukrainian side, using his strength to hold off three Kiev players before slotting in Naismith for the equaliser, while also later converting the penalty to get the win for his side.
