Well played Swansea!
Valencia may be a shadow of their former glories, undergoing severe financial difficulties and were down to 10 men early on against the Welsh side, but the 3-0 win was a seriously brilliant result for Swansea.
To put it in perspective, 10 years ago Swansea were close to going out the football league and hadn’t won a European match for 32 years.
And, Michael Laudrup did not even play his first choice side at the Mestalla with the likes of Ben Davies, Jonjo Shelvey and Wayne Routdledge on the bench.
Full credit also to Valencia supporters for applauding Swansea off after a chastening defeat.
