Česnauskis at the double in Lithuania win

Liechtenstein 0-2 Lithuania
The visitors got their first victory in qualifying Group G thanks to two fine second-half goals from striker Edgaras Česnauskis.

Two second-half goals from Edgaras Česnauskis earned Lithuania their first win in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G at the expense of Liechtenstein.

After an even first half in Vaduz the visitors broke the deadlock six minutes after the restart, Česnauskis opening the scoring with a low shot. The FC Rostov forward made the points safe with a thunderous second 15 minutes from time to ensure Lithuania will visit Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday in buoyant mood. Liechtenstein travel to Latvia the same night still seeking their first points.

The visitors were first to threaten, Ramūnas Radavičius drawing a superb save from Benjamin Büchel in the 17th minute. That proved an isolated incident, however, as the match reached half-time with the scoresheet blank.

The situation soon changed as Česnauskis beat Büchel from just inside the area with a shot that found the bottom right corner of the net. The same player got the second 15 minutes from time, a powerful strike from 20 metres securing the visitors' first victory after a home draw with Slovakia and defeat in Greece.
