Norway kept their hopes of qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup alive by easing past bottom team Cyprus 2-0 in Oslo.

Having been held in their previous two Group E encounters, the importance of victory for Egil Olsen's men could not be stressed enough. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim forward Tarik Elyounoussi lifted the pressure and Joshua King made it two in the second half to leave Norway well-placed ahead of Tuesday's meeting with section leaders Switzerland.
