Jeffrey lauds Blues Europa progression
- From the section Football
Linfield manager David Jeffrey praises his team's performance as the complete a 5-0 aggregate win over IF Fuglafjordur of the Faroe Islands in the Europa League first qualifying round.
"They had a superb attitude. There was great hunger," said Jeffrey, after goals from Michael Gault, Jamie Mulgrew and Philip Lowry helped secure a 3-0 second-leg success at Windsor Park.
"There will be those who say that it was a team for the Faroe Islands which is not a massive football nation and to be fair that is the case. But let's not forget that our own national team couldn't go there and win."
