WC wrap: Luxembourg shock, German thriller

Alphonse Leweck stuck a fairytale winner with four minutes remaining as Luxembourg pulled off an almighty shock in their World Cup qualifying clash in Switzerland.

The Etzella Ettelbruck midfielder came off the bench to seal one of his country's greatest ever triumphs against a side ranked 109 places above them.

It marks a stunning reversal in fortunes for Luxembourg, who failed to register a single point in qualification for the 2006 World Cup.

European champions Spain made it two World Cup qualifying wins out of two with a 4-0 victory over Armenia in Albacete.

Fresh from Saturday's 1-0 triumph over Bosnia-Herzegovina, Spain all but ended this Group Five encounter as a contest after just 16 minutes following goals from Joan Capdevila and David Villa.

Two late strikes from Villa (79) and Marcos Senna (83) then wrapped up the win as Spain made it 25 games without defeat and six in succession without conceding a goal.

England's group six rivals Ukraine can boast an early 100% record in their World Cup qualification campaign after completing a regulation 3-1 win over Kazakhstan this evening.

Their result will not overly concern Fabio Capello or his Croatia counterpart Slaven Bilic, coming as it does off the back of a 1-0 home win over Kazakhstan's fellow minnows Belarus, but it places the Ukraine well ahead of sterner tests.

Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko once again proved his hunger for international goals, scoring his side's second either side of two Serhiy Nazarenko efforts.

Sergey Ostapenko scored the hosts' consolation with 20 minutes of the match remaining.

Belarus registered their first points of the campaign with a 3-1 away victory over Andorra.

Dmitry Verkhovtsov opened the scoring after 36 minutes and although Marc Pujol equalised for the Andorrans, goals from Vitali Rodionov and Vyacheslav Hleb made it safe.

Germany failed to take a firm hold of group four, where they will meet Wales later in qualifying, after being held to a 3-3 draw by Finland.

Miroslav Klose sealed a hat-trick in the 83rd minute for Joachim Low's side after Finland took the lead on three separate occasions through former Charlton, Rangers and Norwich striker Jonatan Johansson, Mika Vayrynen and Daniel Sjolund.

The Germans now have four points, with their hosts on one after their first match.

In the group's other fixture, Liechtenstein drew 0-0 at Azerbaijan.

In group nine Holland recorded a workmanlike win over FYR Macedonia, coming out 2-1 winners.

The Dutch endured a frustrating first half but John Heitinga eventually broke the deadlock in the 46th minute.

Rafael van der Vaart made it two on the hour before a Goran Pandev penalty 12 minutes from the whistle made the visitors sweat for the three points.

Holland now join Scotland and their opponents on three points, but have played one game fewer.

Northern Ireland's group three rivals Poland scored two unanswered goals in their visit to San Marino, with Bolton's Ebi Smolarek and Robert Lewandowski on target to take their tally to four points from two games.

Slovenia had a brace from Milivoje Novakovic to thank for their 2-1 win over Slovakia - a result which puts them level with Poland on four points.

Daniele de Rossi scored in both halves to fire world champions Italy to a modest 2-0 home win over Georgia to move to six points, two ahead of the Republic of Ireland at the summit of group eight.

Greece lead group two with maximum points after they ran out 2-0 winners away to Latvia, while in Israel defeated hosts Moldova 2-1 and Luxembourg were surprise 2-1 winners over Switzerland in Zurich.

Lithuania are the surprise leaders of group seven after two rounds, taking their second consecutive win with a 2-0 win over Austria - conquerors of France last time out.

Tomas Danilevicius scored both goals.

Les Bleus were back to winning ways at the Stade de France, though, with Barcelona's former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry and Chelsea's Nicolas Anelka scoring the goals in a 2-1 win over Serbia.

Another Chelsea man, Branislav Ivanovic, grabbed the visiting side's consolation.

Romania, meanwhile, were 1-0 victors over the Faroe Islands.

European champions Spain made it two World Cup qualifying wins out of two with a 4-0 victory over Armenia in Albacete.

Fresh from Saturday's 1-0 triumph over Bosnia-Herzegovina, Spain all but ended this Group Five encounter as a contest after just 16 minutes following goals from Joan Capdevila and David Villa.

Two late strikes from Villa (79) and Marcos Senna (83) then wrapped up the win as Spain made it 25 games without defeat and six in succession without conceding a goal.

Emre Belozoglu netted an equaliser from the penalty spot to spare Turkey a damaging home defeat in their qualifier against Belgium.

The Fenerbahce midfielder levelled the scores at 1-1 with 16 minutes to go in Istanbul as the Turks battled back.

Wesley Sonck had earlier given the visitors the lead with his third goal of the campaign, adding to the brace he bagged in his side's 3-2 win over Estonia in their Group Five opener at the weekend.

Zvezdan Misimovic hit a hat-trick as Bosnia-Herzegovina got their qualifying campaign up and running in breathtaking style as they hammered Estonia 7-0 in Zenica.

Israel recovered from conceding a first-minute goal to pick up their first victory of their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-1 win against 10-man Moldova.

In the third game in Group Two, Greece continued their winning start to qualifying with 2-0 victory over Latvia.

Two last-gasp goals allowed Denmark to claim a thrilling 3-2 victory over Portugal in Group One.

In a frantic finale Christian Poulsen levelled matters once more before Daniel Jensen grabbed an unlikely winner for the Scandinavians in stoppage time.

Elsewhere, Sweden claimed their first win in Group One thanks to a stirring second-half display against Hungary to win 2-1.

Albania also got off the mark with a confident 3-0 success over Malta.
