Will not rise again from the bottom of the group: Lithuania did not beat the Faroes in the League of Nations again

A draw in this match destroys Lithuania’s theoretical chances of rising from the bottom of Group 1 of Division C.

True, the last place does not yet guarantee a fall to the weakest D division, for a place at a higher level they will have to fight with one outsider of the C division. This survival duel will take place in March.

On Thursday, he made his debut as the national team’s strategist after replacing Valdas Ivanauskas Reinholdas Pitchwho also holds the position of technical director at LFF.

The Faroese footballers won 2:1 in the summer match between them.

In LFF Stadium in Vilnius, the Lithuanians were only satisfied with a victory, but in the 22nd minute, the visitors should have enjoyed the opportunity: after a standard situation, the head hit accurately Jakupas Andreasenas (0:1).

Even after the goal, the representatives of the Faroes were in no hurry to retreat towards their goal. Rivals posed a particularly big threat to the Lithuanians after standard situations. 35 minutes the Lithuanians were lucky that after the excellent combination of the visitors, the ball did not rush into the goal of Džiugos Bartkaus for the second time.

41 min. Done by Slivka sent the ball into the opponent’s goal, but the referee’s assistant recorded it as offside. However, after the VAR review, the field referee changed his colleague’s decision and credited V. Slivka’s goal (1:1).

After the break, the content on the field hardly pleased the fans of the Lithuanian national team. It seems that the victory was not needed for the hosts, but for the guests, who created a much greater danger at Dz. Bartkus gate.

67 min. the Lithuanians were lucky again that Klaemintas Olsen missed the ball after a great pass.

In the second half of the half, the strategist R. Breu threw the youngsters Artūras Dolžnikovas and Titas Milašias onto the field, who replaced Justas Lasickas and Paulias Golubickas.

In the last minutes, the Lithuanians became more active, but they failed to hit the corner for the second time.

Not to mention, Justas Lasickas and Linas Klimavičius will not be able to help the national team due to the yellow cards they received in Luxembourg.
