PAOK’s players and staff surrounded the referee to protest after the final whistle.“It was a tough evening. I’m glad we got there in the end, but don’t ask me how,” Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek said. “It’s a very tough team to play against.”In the playoff round, the last stage of qualifying, Ajax faces a likely easier task against APOEL of Cyprus best replica football jerseys , which beat Azerbaijan’s Qarabag 3-2 on aggregate.The fact that Ajax even had to play qualifying prompted debate over UEFA’s rules, which tend to favor less-storied teams from big countries over high achievers from smaller nations.Ajax’s place in the qualifying rounds was down to the Dutch league’s low ranking, despite its heroics last season.

LONDON (AP) — The English Football Association has charged Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey with improper conduct after he appeared to perform a Nazi salute in a photograph posted online by German teammate Max Meyer.The FA alleges the gesture was “abusive and/or insulting and/or improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.” The governing body adds that it was an aggravated breach of its rules because it included a “reference to ethnic origin and/or race and/or religion and/or belief.”Hennessey was near the back of the table during a team dinner in an image posted earlier this month by Meyer on an Instagram story. He denied performing a Nazi salute www.thetopsoccer.com/italy , saying “any resemblance to that kind of gesture is absolutely coincidental.”Hennessey said he “waved and shouted at the person taking the picture to get on with it and at the same time put my hand over my mouth to make the sound carry.”
