Ukraine and Croatia battled to a 0-0 standstill in their 2010 World Cup qualifying Group Six clash on Saturday, according to AFP.

Ukraine now have seven points from three matches, two behind group leaders England, who beat 5-1 Kazakhstan earlier Saturday.

Croatia, beaten 4-1 at home by England in their last outing, created a few early chances which were confidently dealt with by Ukraine keeper Andrei Pyatov and his defence.
