First World Cup Win For Ukraine

Group H Match

Saudi Arabia vs Ukraine
Hamburg

Previous Encounters:
Saudi Arabia and Ukraine had never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.

The Match:
Ukraine got themselves off to the perfect start in Hamburg, as Andriy Rusol jumped at Maxim Kalinichenko's corner (which perhaps shouldn't have been given) and stabbed the ball into the net with his knee.

Andriy Shevchenko then had a header, from another Kalinichenko corner, saved off the line.

In the 24th minute, Rusol almost scored an own goal as well; at least Olexandr Shovkovskiy was diving, just in case.

Then, just as it seemed the game had gone to sleep, Serhiy Rebrov repaid the trainer for including him in the starting eleven (instead of Ruslan Rotan) by scoring Ukraine's second goal, ten minutes before half-time.

Half-time: (0:2).

Andriy Shevchenko made it three for Ukraine, with a powerful header straight from the re-start; as Ukraine tried to make up the goal difference they lost to Spain in the opening game, in case there's a tie on points.

Just after the hour, Shovkovskiy left the ball to run out of play but substitute Malek Mouath sped in behind him and cut the ball back. Unfortunately, for Saudi Arabia, no-one else was fresh enough to run into the box.

Then, at the other end, Maxim Kalinichenko's left-foot screamer just skimmed off the bar.

After two assists, Maxim Kalinichenko added his name to the growing list of Ukraine goalscorers thanks to an unselfish pass from the captain, Shevchenko; as both players entered the penalty area.

Final Score:
Saudi Arabia 0 - Ukraine 4
