Friendly Win for Cyprus

Friendly Win for Cyprus

The Cypriot National Team managed to defeat Kazakhstan 3-1 in an international friendly on Wednesday, with a strong second half performance.

Against a reasonably strong opponent, Cyprus produced good football, scored 3 goals, and recorded a win before they face Estonia on Saturday in a very important qualifier fixture.

Kazakhstan opened the scoring with Nusserbayev in the first half before Nestoras Mytides equalized with a header early in the 2nd half. Katelaris (62) scored in his first appearance with the national team to give Cyprus the lead and  four minutes later Christofi secured the win for the hosts.

Cyprus line-up: Panayi, Stylianou (77' Panayiotou), Sielis, Alexandrou, Katelaris, Laban (57' Margaca), Kastanos (68' Hambos), Artymatas, Charalambides (57' Christofi), Makris, Mytides (68' Avraam).

On the bench: Giorgallides, Michael, Charalambous, Merkis, Egglezou, Roushias, Laifis, Kyriakou A.

Three Omonia players made their first appearance for the national team, including Panagiotou, Katelaris, and Renato Margaca.
