It wasn’t a happy night in the UEFA Europa League for Danny Vukovic as he was stretched off in Genk’s 4-1 loss to Slavia Prague on Friday morning (AEDT).

The Caltex Socceroos goalkeeper was stretched off and it was all downhill from there for the Belgian Pro League leaders as Slavia’s Milan Skoda scored a brace to send the Czech side into the Round of 16.
