  • Duffy is the first player to be booked after a sloppy pass almost falls to the feet of Barseghyan on the halfway line and Duffy dives in to try and rescue it. However, he's late with the challenge and catches the Armenian.

  • ARMENIA TAKE THE LEAD! What a strike by Spertsyan from the edge of the penalty area to send his side ahead! The midfielder picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch and no-one closes him down quickly enough, so he powers a shot towards goal and it flies into the bottom left corner of the net. Kelleher was nowhere near it. Armenia lead 1-0!
