Cork City have booked their spot in the next round of the Europa League qualifiers this evening after they beat BK Häcken 1-0 at Turner's Cross.

Kevin O’Connor scored the only goal of the game for John Caulfield's side and they now look to be facing either Genk (Belgium) or Buducnost Podgorica (Montenegro).

They eliminate the Swedish Cup holders and will now progress to the third qualifying round of the Europa League, increasing their prize money to €630,000.
