Ukraine keep up Euro qualification hopes with Macedonia win

Ukraine are in with an automatic qualification chance for Euro 2016 after they saw off Macedonia 2-0 at the Philip II Arena.

Yevhen Seleznyov and Artem Kravets did the damage for Ukraine, who are now third in Group C but are level on 19 points with second-placed Slovakia.

Seleznyov gave Ukraine the lead on the hour mark when he scored from the penalty spot, after Andriy Yarmolenko's header came off Leonard Zhuta's arm.

And Kravets closed out the win on 87 minutes thanks to a brilliant solo run that ended with a good finish from close range through Macedonia goalkeeper Tome Pacovski's legs.

With Spain up next, Ukraine will be hoping Slovakia can be derailed by Luxembourg in the quest for second place.
