Georgia are straight into their stride in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group I thanks to a 1-0 victory against Belarus.

Neither side looked keen to risk leaving themselves too open at the back so there was little surprise there was only one goal in it. Tornike Okriashvili struck the decisive blow six minutes after half-time, giving Temuri Ketsbaia's team a welcome fillip ahead of the visit of world and European champions Spain to Tbilisi on Tuesday.
