Saudi Arabia 0-4 Ukraine

Ukraine put their hammering at the hands of Spain behind them by outclassing a poor Saudi Arabia side.

Ukraine were ahead inside four minutes when Mabrouk Zaid needlessly gave away a corner and Andriy Rusol bundled in.

Saudi keeper Zaid was also at fault when he slipped attempting to keep out Serhiy Rebrov's 35-yard piledriver.

Maxim Kalinichenko set up Andriy Shevchenko to head a third just after half-time and the roles were reversed for Kalinichenko to tap in a fourth.

Little went right for Ukraine on their World Cup finals debut against the Spanish.

But it was a vastly different story in Hamburg as they showed why they were the first European side to qualify for the finals.

The Saudis appeared nervous from the start, in particular Zaid, and Ukraine were not slow to take advantage.

The keeper made a hash of a goalkick to give Ukraine an early corner.

Kalinichenko curled the ball in and defender Rusol marched into the area unopposed to deflect it off his knee and through the unfortunate Zaid's legs.

Saudi Arabia seemed to struggle in the slippery conditions in Hamburg, while Ukraine found the surface to their liking with their swift, counter-attacking passing game.

Shevchenko was looking more like the striker Chelsea paid
