Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel poses for a snap with his former Zenit team-mate Anatoliy Tymoshchuk

Martin Skrtel had an eventful Tuesday night.

The Liverpool defender captained Slovakia to a goalless draw with Ukraine which edged his national team closer to qualification for Euro 2016.

Skrtel, who missed their 1-0 loss to Spain through suspension, was subjected to a random drugs test which appeared to damper his spirits after a point.

But the 30-year-old centre-half did get to catch up with his former Zenit St Petersburg team-mate Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, who won the Champions League with Bayern Munich at Wembley in 2013, after the final whistle.

Skrtel wrote on his Instagram page: “Good point against ukraine yesterday took us closer to euro 2016…one more step boys!!!was a nice to meet my old friend @power4timo again…and of course for the 7th time this year spend 2 hours after the game on doping control 🙈🙈🙈 @konoplyanka22 and @yarmolenko10 i hope you guys enjoyed slovakian non alcoholic beer ”

The Reds defender helped Brendan Rodgers’s side keep three successive clean sheets before a 3-0 loss to West Ham United in their most recent Premier League outing before the international break.
