Temwanjira helps FC Vaslui gain a point at Lazio

Romanian club FC Vaslui showed character in coming away with a point following a 2-2 draw at Italian Serie A side Lazio on Thursday night on the first day of the Europa League's 2011/2012 season.

Zimbabwean big striker Mike Temwanjira played a huge role in the impressive result for the Romanian club as he won the 63rd minute penalty after he was fouled by Luciano Zauri as he went for the kill in the box. Zauri received his marching orders for the crude foul on Big Mike Mbozha.

Two goal hero Lopez Wesley converted from the spot.

Wesley had earlier drawn Vaslui level in the 59th minute after Djibril Cisse had given the hosts a 35th minute lead from the penalty. Following the foul on Mbozha Vaslui took the lead, a deserved lead for the character the Romanians showed on the night.

Being 1-2 behind and a man down did not deter the Italians,and their perseverance paid off when they equalised via a Giuseppe Sculli strike in the 71st minute to tie the match 2-2.

The Romanian side will cherish the point gained on the road, while Lazio will rue two points dropped at home.

The group standings  in Group D following the Thursday night matches sees Spanish club Sporting leading following a stunning 2-0 away win at FC Zurich. Vaslui are second owing to the two away goals scored.
