Ukraine are well-placed to qualify for the UEFA Futsal EURO 2014 quarter-finals after a narrow victory against Romania, who are the first team through to the last eight despite defeat in Antwerp.

Having sat out the opening matchday in Group A, when Romania overwhelmed Belgium 6-1, the two-time runners-up claimed the points courtesy of Dmytro Sorokin's 18th-minute finish. While Romania can look forward to a Monday tie at the Sportpaleis, Ukraine will join them in the knockout stage if they avoid a three-goal loss to the hosts here on Saturday.
