Ghana international, Najeeb Yakubu missed out on the UEFA Conference League qualification following Vorskla Poltava’s elimination by KuPS.
The Ukrainian club made a bold step towards qualification after holding Finnish side, KuPS to a 2-2 draw in the first leg away.
Yakubu was instrumental in the first leg, providing an assist in the process.
The unfortunate however happened in the second leg at home when they suffered a 3-2 defeat to KuPS to get booted out of the competition.
Vorskla went ahead on the 48th minutes through Olivier Thill but KuPS’ Jordan Sebban replied just a minute after to settle the game at 1-1.
On the 55th minute mark Vorskla led again with Oleksandr Sklyar shooting them ahead but the visitors were bent on causing an upset when Urho Nissila pulled parity in added time, sending the game into extra time.
KuPS will then shock Vorskla on the 111th minute when Rangel scored to send the Ukrainian club out of the competition on a 5-4 aggregate over the two legs.
Najeeb Yakubu played the entire game but will miss out on European football next season.
