Lithuania gained revenge for September's 2-1 reverse in Riga as they defeated their Baltic rivals to secure at least fourth spot in FIFA World Cup Group G.

With qualification out of the question for both teams it was only local pride at stake, but the visitors' chances of completing a swift double over their neighbours took a blow when Fiodor Černych put the hosts ahead seven minutes in. Lithuania had opportunities to extend the lead before Černych set up fellow winger Saulius Mikoliunas for a clinching second after the break.
