ABERDEEN midfielder Willo Flood today said he is determined not to let KF Shkendija stop them making history.
The Dons host the Macedonian top-flight outfit at Pittodrie tonight (7.45pm) in the second-leg of their Europa League first round qualifier.
The tie stands level at 1-1 after Niall McGinn’s opener was countered by a late equaliser from Hristijan Kirovski in the Philip II Arena in Skopje last week.
Derek McInnes’ side would meet Croatians HNK Rijeka in the second round qualifier, before a third round qualifier against the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Athletic Bilbao or Southampton.
In the play-off round it gets even tougher, with 15 teams dropping down from the Champions League qualifiers, which could include the likes or Monaco, Fenerbahce or Ajax.
Flood admits that should they somehow emerge from that gauntlet, it would be the most impressive achievement of his own career, while also rivalling the famous accomplishments of past Dons teams.
“It would be the biggest achievement in my career, I am sure,” said the former Manchester City and Celtic player.
“Considering how many games we have to go through it would also be one of the biggest achievements for the club.
“I know the club have won European trophies in the past, but financially then they were a lot closer to teams. But now the teams ahead of us are miles ahead in terms of finances.
“So I am sure it would rank right up there.
“It would feel like a trophy and it would be great to give the fans the great European nights they deserve.”
