October 15, 2008: World Cup 2010 Qualifier, Group 7:

Lithuania - Faroe Islands 1-0 (1-0)
1-0 Tomas Danilevicius

A 20th minute goal from captain Tomas Danilevicius was enough for Lithuania to beat the Faroe Islands in Jógvan Martin Olsen's last match as coach for the Faroes.

In a sharp turn, Danilevicius wrong-footed a Faroese defender outside the penalty area and with a well-placed shot, he put the Lithuanians ahead in what proved to be the winning goal.

Apart from this, Lithuania didn’t create many chances. After 13 minutes, keeper Mikkelsen tipped a header over the crossbar and a couple of minutes before the half-hour mark the Lithuanian shot was right on the goalkeeper.

After an hour’s play, a mistake in the Faroese defence led to another Lithuanian chance, but the shot was right in Mikkelsen again.

Near the end, Lithuania should have made it 2-0 when two players got clear after a counterattack, but the attempted lob was well over Jákup Mikkelsen in the Faroese goal.

The Faroe Islands had little to offer going forward and created no real scoring opportunity. A long-range effort from Bogi Løkin (who scored against Austria on Saturday) was the nearest to be categorized as a scoring opportunity for the Faroes. The shot went over and wide, and had it been on target, it would probably not have caused the Lithuanian goalkeeper too many problems.
