CSKA Moscow midfielder Roman Eremenko tested positive for cocaine, UEFA said.

CSKA Moscow midfielder Roman Eremenko has been given a two-year ban for testing positive for cocaine after a Champions League match against Bayer Leverkusen in September.

The 29-year-old's ban starts on Oct. 6, which is when the Finnish international was provisionally suspended.

Eremenko, who was born in Moscow but raised in Finland, played for CSKA in their 1-0 home defeat by Tottenham a fortnight after his positive test but a week before UEFA started disciplinary proceedings.

Artem Kravets' first-half strike was enough for Ukraine to secure a 1-0 win over Finland and move up to second place in their World Cup qualification group.

Yevhen Konoplyanka's surging run down the left set up the decisive moment on 25 minutes as his drilled cross found Kravets, who had the simplest of tasks to turn home after making a run to the back post.

The win in Odessa lifted Ukraine above Iceland, after the Euro 2016 surprise package suffered a damaging 2-0 defeat at Group I leaders Croatia...

IFK Mariehamn dubbed the Finnish Leicester after stunning title win

City may be better off with a pile of stones in defence and Mourinho still knows how to motivate Chelsea in The Sweeper.
IFK Mariehamn captain Jani Lyyski lifts the Finnish league trophy following his side's remarkable triumph.

The Aland Islands, an archipelago between Sweden and Finland in the Baltic Sea, only has a population of 29,000 people. On Sunday, they became one of the smallest communities in the world to have ever celebrated a championship title.

More than 4,300 fans came to the tiny Wiklof Holding Arena, where IFK Mariehamn needed to beat Ilves on the final matchday of the remarkably exciting and dramatic season in the Finnish Veikkausliiga. With just two games to go, four teams had realistic hopes of winning...
