First-half goals from Deivydas Matulevicius and Tadas Kijanskas gave hosts Lithuania their second win in World Cup qualifying Group G over Liechtenstein in Marijampole.

The Lithuanians, who claimed their other win against the same opponents in Vaduz almost a year ago, improved their record to two wins and two draws from seven games.

The result lifted them into fourth place in the group ahead of Baltic rivals Latvia, but any hopes of claiming a top-two place in the group had long gone.

Matulevicius slotted past Liechtenstein goalkeeper Peter Jehle in the 18th minute to give the hosts an early lead at the Suduva Stadium.

Centre-half Kijanskas sealed the victory for Csaba László's men when he headed home five minutes before the break.

The result ends a recent improvement by Liechtenstein which saw them claim draws in consecutive home qualifiers against Latvia and Slovakia before a narrow 1-0 home defeat to Greece last Friday.

Liechtenstein remain rooted to the bottom of the group with those two points from their eight games played.
