Liechtenstein end long absence with Lithuania

Just over 14 years after they last met, Liechtenstein – one of six sides yet to earn a point – and Lithuania come face to face again in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group I.

Just over 14 years after they last met, Liechtenstein and Lithuania come face to face again in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying Group I.

• Liechtenstein are one of six sides yet to earn a point in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying along with Andorra, Kazakhstan, Malta, San Marino and Wales.

• Lithuania kicked off their campaign with a 0-0 draw against Scotland and a shock 1-0 win in the Czech Republic, but have lost their last two Group I games to the holders Spain, both 3-1, and are second from bottom in the section.

• The nations' only previous meetings came in 1998 FIFA World Cup qualifying, with Lithuania winning 2-1 in Vilnius on 9 October 1996 and 2-1 in Eschen-Mauren on 30 April the following year.

• The reverse fixture will be played in Lithuania on 2 September, both teams' next competitive outing.
