UC Last 16: Frey helps Fiorentina through

Sebastien Frey was Fiorentina's hero, adding a penalty shoot-out save to several in regulation time to see the Viola through to the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.

Everton 2-0 Fiorentina AET (Agg: 2-2, Pens: 2-4)
Last 16, Second Leg
Very much second best for the 90 minutes in Florence six days ago, Everton proved a different proposition on home turf with goals in either half from Andrew Johnson and Mikel Arteta to level the aggregate score. Sebastian Frey prevented further damage, however, and the game lurched into extra time and then penalties where the Viola goalkeeper denied Phil Jagielka. With Yakubu Ayegbeni already seeing his effort come back off the crossbar, it allowed Mario Alberto Santana to seal a 4-2 shoot-out success and Fiorentina's first European quarter-final since 1997.
