Cameroon star Vincent Aboubakar double sees Porto through to knock-out stages

"It has always been my dream to play for Leipzig in the Champions League".

Few gave Paulo Fonseca's Shakhtar Donetsk much of a chance when they were drawn in the same group as Manchester City and Napoli, but a brilliant group phase, including two victories against what many say are now the strongest sides in England and Italy, saw the Ukrainian team qualify easily, accumulating 12 points from their 6 matches, double the number of 3rd-placed Napoli.
