Sports briefs: Ukrainian national soccer team beats U.S. 2-0 in exhibition
First Published Mar 05 2014 07:43 pm • Last Updated Mar 05 2014 09:31 pm

SOCCER • On a night that gave a small contingent of Ukrainian fans an opportunity to wave their flags and unite amid a political crisis back home, their national soccer team eased past the United States 2-0 Wednesday in an exhibition game shifted from Kharkiv to Glarnaca, Cyprus, a Mediterranean island nation 600 miles to the south. Andriy Yarmolenko scored in the 12th minute and Marco Devic in the 68th as Ukraine exposed the shaky U.S. central defense. The crowd at Papadopoulos Stadium, which has a capacity of about 10.000, was so small that players could be heard talking with each other.
