Mathias Jänisch struck three minutes from time to give Luxembourg their first win in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group F.

Martin Paterson's 14th-minute opener was wiped out on the stroke of half-time by Aurélien Joachim. Stefano Bensi and Gareth McAuley then traded second-half goals before Jänisch fired in with three minutes remaining.
