The Toon ran oot easy 4-0 winners in the Forsyth Barr Stadium but of course both Liam 'from the Lamp' and John 'The Undertaker' were sadly missin' from the 10,000 crowd.
Liam waz to e mail me pix of their time there, plus the match report for 'The Geordie Times', but tragically the Ukraine waz as far az they got
We've nicked the pic from anothaa site and it haz to be reported that a minutes silence waz impeccably observed in their memory
De Jong opened the scorin' for us in the 18th, hittin' the baall into an empty net
Riviere got wor 2nd 8 minutes later when he forced the baall home
A minute applause then followed in the 28th minute in memory of Liam who waz just 28 years old
Yanga then made it 3 in the 33rd minute through a wicked deflection
A 2nd minutes applause followed in the 63rd minute for 'The Undertaker' who waz 63
Adam Campbell got wor 4th and last goal in the 82nd minute, beatin' the Sydney keeper at the near post
RIP JOHN AND LIAM YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
