Stoch: Celebrates Slovakia's fourth goal

Slovakia moved above Northern Ireland to the top of Group 3 after a crushing 7-0 victory over hapless San Marino.

West Brom full-back Marek Cech was on target twice in the convincing home win, while Chelsea youngster Miroslav Stoch also scored.

Cech made the breakthrough for Slovakia after just three minutes and Peter Pekarik quickly doubled the hosts' advantage.

The unsettled Cech grabbed his second of the game on 32 minutes and Stoch got in on the act three minutes later.

Jan Kozak made it 5-0 before half-time, with Martin Jakubko and Lubos Hanzel then scoring in the space of five second-half minutes to complete the rout.

The result lifts Slovakia two points clear of Nigel Worthington's Northern Ireland side, who have also played a game more than their chief rivals for qualification to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Northern Ireland welcome Slovakia to Belfast in September, while Poland, Czech Republic and Slovenia are still in the mix to finish in the top two positions.
