An unlikely upset looked on the cards when Terrence Vella gave Malta the lead early in their last of their qualifying matches for the UEFA Under 21 Championship


 

 

But the hosts came back strongly and Rybalka scored three times before goals from Dmytro Korishko and Dmytro Grechyshkin completed a comfortable 5-1 victory for the Ukrainians that kept them in the running for a top-two position in Group 2.
