Substitute Artur Sarkisov scored six minutes after coming off the bench to secure Armenia the three points from their Group B encounter away to Malta.

The game looked to be on course for a stalemate after a cautious opening period, with few chances at either end. However, Armenia came out with more intent after the interval, and coach Vardan Minasyan was left delighted after throwing Sarkisov into the fray to score the winner 20 minutes from time.
