[digg=http://digg.com/soccer/England_0_Ukraine_1_UEFA_World_Cup_Qualifying_Highlights]England’s 100% FIFA World Cup 2010 qualifying record came to an end today when they went down 0-1 at the Ukraine.
Goalkeeper Robert Green was ejected after only 13 minutes for a foul on Artem Milevskiy.
Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko sent substitute goalie David James the wrong way on the ensuing penalty kick but struck the post.
However, Sergiy Nazarenko’s deflected shot on 29 minutes was enough to earn Ukraine the win and leave them in contention for a play-off spot with one match to go.
