Away win lifts Poland to summit

Liechtenstein 0-5 Poland
Jacek Kielb and Patryk Małecki both scored twice as Poland won easily at Sportpark Eschen-Mauren to replace Spain as the leaders of Group 4.

Jacek Kielb and Patryk Małecki both scored twice as Poland won 5-0 away to Liechtenstein at Sportpark Eschen-Mauren to replace Spain as the leaders of Group 4.

In-form striker
The result may not have been in doubt but Liechtenstein were two minutes away from going in at half-time on level terms when Kielb finally broke the deadlock for the visitors. Małecki struck his first of the night in the 59th minute before the in-form Wisla Kraków striker registered Poland's third in the 73rd.

Spain second
Kielb was the next man on the scoresheet with ten minutes to play, but neither forward was able to complete a hat-trick as substitute Artur Sobiech struck the fifth in added time. Poland have nine points from four matches, three ahead of a Spain side who have a perfect record from two outings – the first a defeat of the Poles.
