    Ukraine beat Estonia 4-0 in Euro warm-up

    Kufstein: Ukraine warmed up for the European Championship in style on Monday, beating Estonia 4-0 in a friendly after scoring three first-half goals.

    Dynamo Kiev midfielder Andriy Yarmolenko scored for the Euro 2012 co-hosts with a thundering shot from just inside the area in the ninth minute.

    Oleh Husyev converted a penalty in the 34th after Yarmolenko was brought down by Estonia defender Ragnar Klavan, and Spartak Moscow striker Andriy Voronin added a third goal seven minutes later with a header.

    Ukraine lost much of their fluency after coach Oleh Blokhin substituted six players in the second half, though Andriy Shevchenko set up Dynamo Kiev teammate Artem Milevskiy to make it 4-0 in the 50th.

    Ukraine have won four of their past five matches, including a 3-3 draw with Germany.

    Ukraine play Austria in Innsbruck on Friday and Turkey four days later in Augsburg, Germany. The team takes on Sweden in their first match at Euro 2012 on June 11 in a group that also contains England and France.
