Ukraine continued their ominous form at the International Federation of Cerebral Palsy Football World Cup with a 5-0 thrashing of the Netherlands in the quarter-finals.

The defending champions tore apart the Dutch with five goals in the opening 15 minutes, which included a hat-trick from Vitalii Romanchuk.

And having enjoyed another emphatic success at Ciudad Deportiva José Ramón Cisneros Palacios – the training ground of La Liga club Sevilla – Ukraine will face Brazil or Iran in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

In today’s other last-eight clash, Russia hammered Argentina 5-0, setting up a duel with United States or England.

Lower down the order, Australia inched closer to a ninth-place finish after easing past Thailand 5-0.

Canada hit a late treble to sink Spain 3-0 and will on Tuesday meet either Ireland or Japan.

Quarter-final action continues tomorrow when Brazil play Iran and the US take on England.
