Cyprus and Albania bow out with goalless draw

Cyprus 0-0 Albania
There were no goals in Nicosia as the two eliminated Group E sides shared the spoils in their concluding qualifying fixture.

Cyprus and Albania played out a scoreless draw in their concluding FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E game.

There were no goals in Nicosia as Cyprus and Albania, both unable to reach the finals in Brazil prior to kick-off, ended their respective campaigns with a stalemate. Albania started the match on the front foot but failed to find a breakthrough despite several first-half corners.

The visitors continued to press after the interval but, despite 14 attempts on goal over the 90 minutes, they were unable to find a way past a resilient Cyprus side. Nonetheless, the Mediterranean team finish bottom of the section with five points from ten games, with Albania six points better off in the standings.
