SHAKHTAR DONESTK boss Paulo Fonseca is a man true to his word… after turning up to his post match press conference dressed as ZORRO.

After being drawn in a Champions League group alongside Manchester City, Napoli and Feyenoord, he promised to dress up as Zorro if his side qualified for the Round of 16.

The Ukrainian side needed just a point against Pep Guardiola's side to ensure second spot in the group.

But they went one better, succumbing City to their first defeat of the season in a 2-1 win.

Supporters knew the outsiders had a great chance of qualifying and hundreds of fans in attendance brought their own Zorro masks to encourage their side.

Brazilian Bernard curled in a fantastic opener to send them on their way.

And with Napoli, the only side who could knock them out of second spot drawing in Feyenoord, supporters were sent into raptures when Ismaily doubled their lead on 32 minutes.

City did fire a late comeback when Sergio Aguero dispatched a penalty but it wasn't enough as Fonseca made his way straight to the dressing room.

And when he returned in a mask, cape and hat, reporters couldn't take a delighted Fonseca seriously.

The Ukrainian champions could now take on Manchester United, Liverpool or Spurs in Monday's draw.
