Rovers get Spurs in Europa League

Updated: August 26, 2011

Shamrock Rovers were handed a real glamour fixture as they drew Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League group stages.

They also face two other tough trips as they must travel to Rubin Kazan of Russian who shocked Barcelona in 2009 and PAOK F.C of Greece.

The ties are likely to be played in Landsdowne Road as demand is likely to far exceed the facilities of Tallaght Stadium.

The Hoops qualified with an extra-time penalty from Stephen O’Donnell after Pat Sullivan equalised with a rocket of a goal against FC Partizan in Belgrade last night.
