Montenegro's Damjanović knocks down Ukraine

Ukraine 0-1 Montenegro
Dejan Damjanović's goal caused a stir in Group H, with Stevan Jovetić also missing a penalty late on as the hosts floundered in Kyiv.

Dejan Damjanović sent a shockwave through FIFA World Cup Group H, scoring Montenegro's winner against Ukraine in Kyiv.

With home coach Oleh Blokhin in hospital, stand-in Andriy Bal oversaw the UEFA EURO 2012 co-hosts' first defeat in the section as FC Seoul forward Damjanović struck the only goal just before the break. It could easily have been worse for Ukraine, with Stevan Jovetić's penalty ten minutes from time saved by Andriy Pyatov.

Ukraine dominated possession, but Montenegro goalkeeper Mladen Božović was to have a reasonably quiet evening, with a lack of real bite about the home team. The visitors, meanwhile, made their best chance count in the 45th minute, with a loose pass from Taras Mikhalik inviting Jovetić to scamper through and lay on a gilt-edged opportunity which Damjanović converted.

Yevhen Selin's foul on Miodrag Džudović presented Jovetić with a chance to kill off the contest yet Pyatov's save inspired Ukraine to redouble their efforts at the end. However, the best of their opportunities went begging as Ruslan Rotan got his head to a Yevhen Konoplyanka cross but could not direct his effort on target.
