Germany maintained their perfect record and England got back to winning ways, while Slovakia and the Republic of Ireland capitalised on a slip by Russia in Saturday's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying action.
Runners-up in 2008, Germany have been faultless so far in their campaign to reach Poland and Ukraine and continued their good form with a 4-0 home victory against Kazakhstan. Joachim Löw's side now lead Group A by eight points.
England joined Montenegro on top of Group G after two goals in the first 15 minutes helped them triumph in Wales and Greece also went top of their pool with a last-minute winner away to Malta after Georgia secured a 1-0 home success against Croatia.
In Group B, Russia's goalless draw in Armenia allowed Slovakia – 1-0 winners in Andorra – and the Republic of Ireland, who beat the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia 2-1, to join them on ten points at the summit. Norway and Denmark drew 1-1 in the battle for Group H supremacy while Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Romania 2-1 in Group D.
