Half-Time Report: Cyprus hammering sorry Andorra

Two goals from Georgios Efrem help Cyprus establish a 3-0 half-time lead over Andorra in their Euro 2016 qualifier in Nicosia.

Cyprus have opened up a dominant 3-0 lead over Andorra in tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier in Nicosia.

The home side broke the deadlock with 10 minutes played when Giorgios Merkis took advantage of some poor goalkeeping to head in from a corner.

Cyprus then doubled their lead on 31 minutes as Georgios Efrem arrived in the box to tap in from close range.

An impressive opening half from the Cypriots was capped just three minutes before the break when Efrem bagged his second of the game with a calm finish after showing some good footwork inside the area.
