Second-half goals by substitute Serghei Dadu and captain Alexandru Epureanu earned Moldova a 2-0 win against San Marino at the Stadio Olimpico in Serravalle – their first victory in Group H.

The hosts, who had leaked 11 goals in their first two games, held out until the 72nd minute when Dadu broke the deadlock from the penalty spot within 60 seconds of coming onto the pitch. Epureanu's header then sealed a timely success for the visitors 12 minutes from time.
