Ukraine reach group summit

Ukraine 5-0 Liechtenstein A clinical first-half display helped Ukraine ease to victory and to the top of qualifying Group 2.

A clinical first-half display helped Ukraine to a 5-0 victory against Liechtenstein, which enabled them to replace the Czech Republic at the Group 2 summit after the latter could only draw with Turkey today.

Tight group
Ukraine had won 3-1 in Liechtenstein in their previous UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier and there was no danger of the minnows avenging that loss as they fell 2-0 behind inside 30 minutes, Denes Oliynyk (26) and Dmytro Lopa (29) finding the net. Kostyantyn Yaroshenko added a third ten minutes later and Olexandr Gladkiy (41) stroked in a penalty to make it 4-0 at half-time. Oleksi Antonov scored the only goal of the second half in the 54th minute. Ukraine have 12 points from six games yet could be overtaken by both the Czechs and Turkey who have games in hand.
