Result: Cyprus ease past Andorra

Cyprus maintain their chances of qualifying for Euro 2016 thanks to a comfortable 5-0 win over Andorra.

Cyprus have maintained their chances of qualifying for Euro 2016 thanks to a 5-0 victory over Andorra in Group B.

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 doubled their lead on 31 minutes as Georgios Efrem arrived in the box to tap in from close range following a cross from the right.

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.

Effrem then became the first player to score a hat-trick for Cyprus on 60 minutes when he capitalised on some suspect goalkeeping to convert, while a Demetris Christofi penalty three minutes from time made it 5-0.
