Artem Dzjuba's four goals helps Russia dominate Liechtenstein

Artem Dzjuba scored four times as Russia climbed into second place in Euro 2016 qualifying Group G after a thumping 7-0 win in Liechtenstein.

The Spartak Moscow striker opened his account after 21 minutes when Roman Shirokov unselfishly set him up to tap into an empty net.

In the 40th minute Daniel Kaufmann was sent off for fouling Dzjuba and Aleksandr Kokorin rolled in the penalty, before Dzjuba hit the third on the stroke of half-time.

After the break Dzjuba met Dmitri Kombarov's cross to complete his treble from close range.

Fedor Smolov and Alan Dzagoev were also on target before Dzjuba wrapped up the scoring with his fourth in the final minute.
