[EUROPA LEAGUE] Everton suffered its worst loss since the arrival of Landon Donovan on loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy, falling to Portugal's Sporting Lisbon, 3-0, in the second leg of their Europa League series and exiting the competition in the round of 32. The loss would have been worse but for a great game by Tim Howard.

Goals from Miguel Veloso, Pedro Mendes and Matias Fernandez after the hour mark gave Sporting Lisbon the win.

Howard made a great save to deny Joao Moutinho from close range and tipped a shot from Abel over the bar.

Everton won the first leg at home, 2-1.

Meanwhile, Fulham and Liverpool, the two other EPL teams still alive in Europe's No. 2 competition both advanced.
