The English football club Liverpool has beaten France's Lille 3-0 in the second-leg to secure a quarter-final spot in the Europa League.

Liverpool started strong with a Steven Gerrard penalty after just eight minutes, and Fernando Torres scored twice in the second half to put the win beyond doubt.

The win pushed Liverpool through to the next stage 3-1 on aggregate, where they join Fulham as the only two English sides to make the Europa quarter-finals stage.
