Liechtenstein picked up their first FIFA World Cup Group G point, Latvia's Aleksandrs Cauņa cancelling out Michele Polverino's opener for the home side before missing the chance to win the game from the penalty spot.

Beaten 2-0 when the sides met in Latvia last autumn, Liechtenstein looked much stronger on home soil, and while Artjoms Rudņevs threatened at the other end, Polverino gave Rene Pauritsch's side a deserved lead when he turned in a David Hasler cross after 17 minutes. Cauņa responded in style on the half-hour, though, hitting a fine free-kick into the top right corner.
