Must win this match in order to get off to a good start.

I think it will be a 2-0 victory.

2-0! Mintal!

Svento goes into the box, slips it to Sebo, who finds Mintal, and Marek doesn't hesitate to put it into the net.

3-0! Sebo!

Svento again beats defenders, gives it to Mintal in the box, Mintal shoots low and Sebo deflects it into the empty net.

Crazy turn of events.

First, Cyprus scores a goal, but the referee waves it off for offside. Then, Svento brilliantly sets up the goal by beating defenders and passing the ball delicately back for Sebo, who one-times it into the net with no problems.

5-0!!!! Miroslav Karhan!

Mintal centres the ball, and Karhan rifles a volley into the net, no chance for the goal-keeper.

By the way, this is Karhan's 80th cap for Slovakia, which passes Lubomir Moravcik for the most ever.

Congratulations Miro.

Holosko and Krajcik nicely combined to present Mintal with a good chance, and he took advantage.

Last substitution for us: Sebo and his two goals are off, replaced by Hodur.
