Ukraine put in a superb performance to outplay a Scotland team that must continue to wait for their first World Cup appearance since 1998.

Captain Andriy Yarmolenko opened the scoring for the visitors with a fine lofted finish in the 33rd minute after beating the Scottish offside trap

Striker Roman Yaremchuk then gave Ukraine some breathing room with a header past Craig Gordon just four minutes into the second half.
