Mykhaylo Fomenko marked his first competitive game in charge of Ukraine with an impressive 3-1 victory against Poland in Warsaw. 

Two goals inside the opening seven minutes from Andriy Yarmolenko and Oleh Gusev put the visitors in control before Borussia Dortmund full-back Łukasz Piszczek trimmed the deficit. Roman Zozulya scored the game's fourth and final goal on the stroke of half-time to enable Ukraine to leapfrog their UEFA EURO 2012 co-hosts into third in Group H.

The contest was just two minutes old when Yarmolenko displayed nimble footwork before powering a shot beyond the reach of Artur Boruc. The Southampton FC goalkeeper barely had time to catch his breath before being beaten again, this time by Gusev from long range.
