Liechtenstein 1-1 Moldova

Moldova picked up only the second point of their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign as they held Liechtenstein to a 1-1 draw in Vaduz.
The home side took the lead through Sandro Wieser's stunning opener but once Gheorghe Boghiu equalised, Moldova, bottom of Group G, looked the side more likely to win the game.
Moldova midfielder Anatolie Cheptene brought an early save from Liechtenstein goalkeeper Peter Jehle, but it was the home side who opened the scoring in some style in the 20th minute.
Wieser cut in from the right and unleashed a fierce left-footed strike from distance which flew into the top corner off the underside of the crossbar.
The visitors looked for a quick response as Jehle held on to Boghiu's 12-yard effort and did well to keep out a Andrei Cojocari shot, before denying Artur Patras from close in.
The equaliser which Moldova's pressure deserved arrived just before the break as Nicolae Milinceanu darted into the box and pulled the ball back for Boghiu to slot home.
Milinceanu brought another decent stop from Jehle in the 64th minute and Alexandru Gatcan was not too far away shortly afterwards, while Daniel Brandle had Liechtenstein's best second-half attempt, firing straight at Ilie Cebanu from the edge of the box.
