Liechtenstein were 17 minutes away from claiming a first win in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G but nevertheless earned their second draw in a row to prevent Slovakia keeping pace with both Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina at the summit.

With the top two sides picking up victories, Stanislav Griga's play-off chasers are four points behind the second-placed Greeks, but things could have been much worse after Martin Büchel put the hosts ahead at the Rheinpark. However, Ján Ďurica headed a second-half equaliser to save his country against the section's bottom team, who nevertheless take great pride from a pair of undefeated outings.
