Slovenia moved third in Group E and kept their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification chances alive with a 2-0 victory against bottom side Cyprus in Nicosia.

Goals in each half from Milivoje Novakovič and substitute Josip Iličić secured Srečko Katanec's visitors their second victory over Cyprus, who suffered a second 2-0 loss in four days having gone down by the same score in Norway.
