Ukraine claimed their first victory in 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifying Group H by beating their UEFA EURO 2012 co-hosts on a thrilling night in Warsaw.
The visitors had failed to win a competitive game since beating Sweden at last summer's tournament but a double salvo from Andriy Yarmolenko and Oleg Gusev put them on the right track.
Ukraine boss Mykhaylo Fomenko's quest for a first win looked to be over when his side took a quickfire two-goal lead.
After just two minutes Yarmolenko opened the scoring in style with a curling shot from outside the area.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski could only head into Andrei Pyatov's gloves but in the 18th minute Piszczek squeezed the ball home from Jakub Blaszczykowski's free-kick.
Blaszczykowski fancied a goal of his own but his left-footed volley sailed over the crossbar.
This time Yarmolenko's header from just outside the area found Zozulya perfectly placed to volley home with aplomb.
An attritional period followed the half-time interval but the game jolted back to life as Pyatov parried Ludovic Obraniak's fierce right-footed effort on the hour mark.
Ukraine answered that baring of teeth immediately through Gusev, whose shot was tipped round a post by Artur Boruc.
The Southampton goalkeeper stood even taller to keep Vyacheslav Shevchuk's close-range effort out of his net but he could only close his eyes and hope as Gusev spooned over the bar from six yards.
Lewandowski's late attempt at mounting a comeback raised few eyebrows, though, and Ukraine climbed into third place.
