Slovakia's big first half leads to win over Lithuania

Slovakia scored three times in the first half as they cruised to a 4-0 home victory over Lithuania in World Cup Qualifying European Group F.

Two goals in quick succession put the hosts firmly in control early on as Adam Nemec converted a header in the 12th minute and then teed up a strike from outside the box by Juraj Kucka in the 15th.

Martin Skrtel added another in the 36th with a close-range finish and Marek Hamsik's strike then wrapped things up with four minutes to go.

Slovakia are up two places to third in the group with six points from four games, while Lithuania, who have five points, drop two spots to fourth.
