Saudi Arabia 0-4 Ukraine
Andriy Shevchenko scored his first World Cup goal as Ukraine put their dismal display against Spain firmly behind them in Hamburg with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Saudi Arabia.
Oleg Blokhin’s team had lost their opener 4-0 to the Spaniards but bounced back to take a comfortable three points against the outclassed Asians, whose uncertainty at set-pieces was ruthlessly exposed.
When did Saudi Arabia become “Asia” and Saudi Arabians, “Asians?” And even if they were Asian, how racist is it to call them out like this?! Maybe I’m tripping.
