FIFA World Cup qualifier: Montenegro 4-1 Armenia

Montenegro captain Stevan Jovovic scored a hat trick and set up another goal to steer his side to a 4-1 win over Armenia in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier, AP reports.

Jovovic set up Fatos Beciraj in the second minute, then made it 2-0 with low shot from edge of box and struck his second after the break.

Jovovic completed his hat trick with a  scissors kick late on, before Ruslan Koryan scored a consolation  for Armenia.

Montenegro, which needed Danijel Petkovic to deny Marcos Pizzelli an equalizer after Beciraj scored, avenged its 3-2 defeat to Armenia in Yerevan last November.

Montenegro moved back ahead of Denmark on goal difference, while Armenia stayed fifth on six points, level with Romania in fourth on goal difference.
