Mixed ambitions for Liechtenstein, Lithuania

Liechtenstein host Lithuania tomorrow night with both sides playing for very different reasons.

The home side welcome Lithuania to Vaduz in the only Group I fixture of the weekend looking to register their first point of the campaign.

They are currently one of six sides in UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying yet to get off the mark and will be looking for a change in fortunes against Raimondas Zutautas' side. Lithuania, meanwhile, are harbouring outside hopes of second place in the standings.

After following up a draw against Scotland with a surprise 1-0 win over the Czech Republic, they unsurprisingly failed to take anything from back-to-back matches against FIFA World Cup™ winners Spain, who top the table by six points.

Each goalkeeper will have a chance and we will only decide who will play after our training camp.

Victory tomorrow would bring them to seven points - two behind the Czechs after five matches. Zutautas has a decision to make between untested pair Ernestas Setkus and Mindaugas Malinauskas in goal after losing established goalkeepers Zydrunas Karcemarskas and Paulius Grybauskas to injury.

With the promising Vytautas Cerniauskas also unavailable, the coach has yet to decide which man will earn the No1 jersey. "Each goalkeeper will have a chance and we will only decide who will play after our training camp," he said.

Arunas Klimavicius and Gediminas Paulauskas are pushing for recalls in defence after missing the previous defeat to Spain, with midfielder Vitalijus Kavaliauskas earning a recall to the squad.

The sides have met twice before, in qualification for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, with Lithuania victorious on both occasions.
