Notes - Rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Dernis in the Champions League Group D match against Villarreal played at the Stade de France, Paris on the 27th September 2005. Dernis joined the action as an 84th-minute substitute and helped the side to keep a clean sheet and grind out a 0-0 stalemate. Later the side achieved a famous victory over English giants Man United who were also in the group as Benfica. Despite this momentous triumph they did not qualify for the next round but finished in 3rd place to secure UEFA Cup spot, leaving United out of Europe. Dernis made 34 appearances and netted 4 goals.
