Paris: Swansea City trounced Romanians Petrolul Ploiesti 5-1 in Wales, making it a good outing for the English Premier League sides in the Europa League after Tottenham hammered Dinamo Tbilisi 5-0 on Thursday.

Wayne Routledge started the ball rolling, scoring a pair of first half goals either side of Spaniard Michu's (in pic) close range toe poke.

And Ploiesti's Brazilian goalkeeper Picanha scored an unfortunate own goal to compound matters in the second half, elbowing the ball over the line after he had initially saved Wilfried Bony's near post flick.
