    Charalambides (Cyprus) scores!
    Surely Cyrpus will claim their first three points in the group now as Charalambides scores his second of the game to make it 5-2. His right-footed shot from the edge of the penalty area sends the crowd into a state of frenzy here in Nicosia. It will be Cyprus' first competitive victory since a 3-0 win away against the Faroe Islands in August 2005 and their first at home since a 2-1 win against Malta in November 2002.
