Playing in eastern Ukraine's Kharkiv, National Team Ukraine beat the Czech Repiblic 1:0, according to the UEFA website.

Ruslan Malinovskyi's long-range first half strike - his second in as many international matches - was the difference between the sides, as the visitors failed to create as many clear-cut chances in the second half as in the first period.

When Jaroslav Šilhavý's men did look dangerous, they found Ukrainian keeper Andriy Pyatov in fine form.

Malinovskyi has now scored in three successive matches for club and country, and can boast 10 goals in 20 appearances for Genk and Ukraine this campaign.

Jaroslav Šilhavý's men have now lost three of their last four internationals, and face a UEFA Nations League relegation battle with Slovakia on November 19.
