Result: Ukraine smash nine past San Marino

Ukraine comfortably beat San Marino to stay in contention for World Cup qualification.

Ukraine have swept aside minnows San Marino 9-0 as they kept pace with England ahead of Tuesday's vital qualifier.

Marko Devic opened the scoring for the hosts after only 11 minutes as they perhaps predictably enjoyed the bulk of possession in Lviv.

Ukraine continued to besiege the San Marino goal with five attempts on target in the opening 20 minutes.

They doubled their lead on 26 minutes thanks to Yevhen Seleznyov and Andriy Yarmalenko also made it three straight away, denied only by the woodwork.

Edmar did score and Yevhen Khacheridi made it 4-0 on the stroke of half time.
San Marino were under pressure almost immediately as Ukraine scored two more in the opening minutes of the second half through Yevhen Konoplyanka and Khacheridi's second.

Roman Bezus added a seventh on 63 minutes with Artem Fedetskiy and Yaroslav Rakitskiy rounding off a miserable night for the San Marinese side.

The win keeps Ukraine one point behind England and means that should Roy Hodgson's side lose in Kiev, their World Cup fate will be out of their hands.
