Montenegro go top with San Marino win

Montenegro 3-0 San Marino
The hosts extended their unbeaten run to seven games and top Group H thanks to an Andrija Delibašić double and Elsad Zverotić's strike.

Montenegro moved top of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group H and extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 3-0 victory against San Marino.

Andrija Delibašić opened the scoring on 14 minutes and grabbed his second of the game to double the advantage just past the half-hour. The game followed a similar pattern after the break and Elsad Zverotić completed the scoring on 68 minutes.

Delibašić looked lively early on and it did not take long for the Rayo Vallecano de Madrid to make the breakthrough, converting Vladimir Volkov's cross from the left. The 31-year-old did not need a second invitation to extend the lead on 31 minutes, redirecting Mitar Novaković's header past a helpless Aldo Simoncini in the San Marino goal.

There was little change after the break as the hosts controlled the game and they scored a third when Zverotić collected a Luka Djordjević pass and finished with aplomb. Delibašić almost completed his hat-trick late on but his shot struck a post. Branko Brnović's side will end the year top of Group H, two points clear of England, and return to action against Moldova on 22 March 2013.
