90+4'
FULL-TIME! It's all over and Ukraine have done it! First-half goals from Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk hand Ukraine a vital 2-1 win over North Macedonia to strengthen their hopes of qualifying out of Group C at Euro 2020. The relatively comfortable victory leaves Ukraine third in the group on three points with one game left to play against Austria on Monday. For North Macedonia, their chances of qualifying are slim with back-to-back defeats leaving them bottom.
