The win placed the blue-and-yellows in third after
three rounds of qualifying play, three points behind leader Slovakia, followed
by second-place Spain. Ukraine and Spain each have six points, but the
defending European champions have a superior goal differential of 7-2.
The Dynamo Kyiv midfielder
broke through in the second minute of injury time of the first half. Dynamo
winger Andriy Yarmolenko deflected Yevhen Konoplyanka’s
cross with his knee toward a striding Sydorchuk who struck low from eight
meters into the net.
Yarmolenko could’ve improved the score three minutes after the
break, but his penalty hit the woodwork after goalkeeper Aleksandar Damchevski
took down Roman Zozulya.
