Russia 4-0 Andorra: Kerzhakov hat-trick

ST PETERSBURG, Russia, June 2 (Reuters) - Alexander

Kerzhakov notched a hat-trick as Russia routed Andorra 4-0 in

their Euro 2008 Group E qualifier on Saturday.

The Sevilla striker fired the home team ahead in the eighth

minute with a neat lob over Andorra keeper Koldo Alvarez, then

doubled the lead eight minutes later.

Kerzhakov made it 3-0 four minutes after the break by

latching on to a rebound and substitute Dmitry Sychev scored the

fourth midway through the second half.

"Scoring a quick goal is always very important against a

team like Andorra, and today we did just that," said Kerzhakov,

who has scored five goals in Russia's last two qualifiers after

notching a double in a 2-0 win over Estonia in March.

'We got a nice lead early on and we were able to maintain a

good level of play throughout the rest of the match.'

The Russians could have easily added a few more but were

still satisfied with a comfortable victory which moved them top

of the group with 14 points from six matches, a point ahead of

Croatia, who were playing Estonia later on Saturday.

Andorra, who were missing eight first-team players through

injury and suspension, rarely threatened Russia's goal as they

slumped to their sixth defeat in six qualifiers.
