Lazaros Christodoulopoulos's first-half strike proved enough to steer Greece to a 1-0 victory against Lithuania in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group G. 

With Greece on the back foot for long stretches, it was the home team who showed early sparkle before Christodoulopoulos extinguished their ambitions on 20 minutes. Lithuania's response was spirited but Fernando Santos's side held their nerve to move four points clear in second place, three behind Bosnia and Herzegovina.
