Stevan Jovetic helps Montenegro to rout of Kazakhstan

Montenegro routed Group E rivals Kazakhstan 5-0 in their World Cup qualifier in Podgorica.

Zarko Tomasevic gave Montenegro a half-time lead before Nikola Vukcevic, Stevan Jovetic, Fatos Beqiraj and Stefan Savic all hit the target in a second period Ljubisa Tumbakovic's side dominated.

Montenegro had gone close through Marko Simic and Tomasevic before the latter headed them into a 24th-minute lead from Jovetic's cross.

Neither side created another goal scoring chance in the first period, but Montenegro cut loose after the interval.

Damir Kojasevic set up Vukcevic to head home the second in the 59th minute and former Manchester City forward Jovetic, currently with Inter Milan, fired home from inside the area five minutes later.

Beqiraj converted Marko Vesovic's ball in from close range in the 73rd minute and Savic's header four minutes later, from another Kojasevic cross, completed the scoring.
