Cyprus striker Nestor Mytides – scorer of all three goals in Cyprus’ 3-1 win in Andorra in June – is adamant his side will not be playing defensively against Wales and Belgium over the next week despite the arrival of Group B’s top two in Nicosia.

“The game against Wales is very important. Whatever the difficulties, our aim is to win. We will always aim to win because that is the only way to look forward. We can chase the dream and we will do whatever we can for the national side,” said the 24-year-old. “We will follow the instructions of our manager while we also need to be focused, disciplined and to seize what opportunities we can from this game.”

Defenders:  Jason Demetriou (Walsall), Valentinos Sielis (AEL Limassol), Elias Charalambous (Larnaca), Marios Antoniades (APOEL), Angelis Angeli (Apollon Limassol), Dossa Júnior (Konyaspor).

Midfielders: George Eleftheriou (AEL Limassol), Constantinos Makridis (APOEL), Vincent Laban (AEK Larnaca), Georgios Economides (Omonia), Kostakis Artymatas (APOEL), Marios Nikolaou (Levadiakos), Grigoris Kastanos (Juventus), Nektarios Alexandrou (APOEL), Kostas Laifis (Anorthosis Famagusta), Nikos Englezou (AEK Larnaca), Constantinos Charalambides (APOEL).
